This is an activity that I have used when doing a pirate theme in my classroom. I have students complete it in the last week, seal their letters in small bottles (miniature coke bottles, water bottles, etc.) and take their bottles home to be read at their chosen time.
The procedures are included, as well as printable pages for the students. Each printable page is presented in both color and black and white.
Please note: If you purchased my Message in a Bottle Beginning of the Year Writing, this is a very similar product with only a few wording differences. It would be, quite honestly, a waste of your money to purchase this. If you are still interested in this product, please contact me.
