Letter Writing Project ~ "I Love Your Book!" ~ Letter to an Author
With this letter writing unit, students will brainstorm different books that they have read and enjoyed. They’ll choose one to write about in a letter to the author. In the letter, they’ll thank the author, tell what they liked about the book, and ask a question. Then they’ll mail their letters!
This letter writing project would be a great way to wrap up an author study. Students could choose their favorite book by the author to write their letter about. All letters could be mailed to the author at once.
For younger students, letters could all be written about a favorite class read-aloud book. Students will have different opinions about why they like the same book, and all letters could be mailed together.
For older students, this project could be a part of reading/writing workshop. When students finish reading a book, they can write a letter to the author as a post-reading project.
