Written with second graders in mind but could easily be used in a 1st or 3rd grade as well.

This makes a great beginning of the school year unit to ease your students into writer’s workshop. This unit uses picture books to model letter writing for your students. Through this unit, students will become most familiar with a friendly letter, but will also be exposed to persuasive letters and thank you letters and the reasons we write different types of letters.
