Does your class cover an alphabet letter each week? Would you like to extend this learning beyond your classroom doors and into your students’ homes? Take your Letter of the Week lessons a step further with these Take-Home notes. Each note informs your students’ grownups what letter is being covered that week at school. The notes are written in first person, as written by the student to the grownup.
There are three variations of these take-home notes.
Variation #1 simply informs the grownups at home what letter is being covered that week, and requests that the grownup help the student find things that begin with that letter.
Variation #2 informs the grownups which letter is being studied that week and asks them to help the child bring something to school that starts with that letter.
Variation #3 is a “work ahead” note. It tells the grownups what letter is going to be covered the following week, and asks for something to be sent in that next week to show to the class.
All of the notes are 4.25" x 5.5" (1/4 of a piece of letter-sized paper). The notes are formatted four letter notes to a page (the notes for letters A, B, C and D are all on one page, etc.).
Each note is decorated with clip art corresponding that that letter.
Both Variation Two and Variation Three would be perfect to staple to a paper bag so that the student can bring their item back in the bag.
