This is a great project for the end of the year, or anytime you'd like to thank someone. Included are three writing projects (narrative letter, informative, and opinion), a graphic organizer, two thank you notes (or you could enlarge into posters) for students to participate in, and finished product pictures of the thank you notes. There are also instructions for use.
These projects fit into the writing curriculum, but also could be used with a unit on community helpers. Enjoy!
