These challenging times present a great opportunity for character building and community engagement. Letters of hope is a writing activity or writing campaign to have our students make cards, or letters to send messages of gratitude to a hospital worker, doctor, nurse, aide, family member, friend, your pediatrician, or whomever you think might need an uplifting note. You can adapt the presentation to meet your students needs, so add or remove as you please. This activity engages their creativity, puts to practice their writing skills and allows for them to practice a little Spanish. Plus bringing back an old method of communication, hand written letters! This activity breaks the routine of the student's work load and allows for creativity, giving them the opportunity to express appreciation and make connections that go beyond the classroom.
