This 5-day lesson plan, with helpful printables, teaches students to write a friendly letter, as they practice being thoughtful. I designed this lesson to develop social skills, as well as literacy.
Is writing a friendly letter a lost art? It sure seems that way! But to me, letter writing is an important skill to learn, because it involves learning how to put yourself "in other people's shoes."
This resource includes:
• Graphic organizers
• 12 Months of the Year worksheet
• Writing Dates worksheet
• Being Thoughtful worksheet
• Answer Keys
• Sample letters and revisions
• Student Checklists
• Writing Paper
• Pocket Chart Sentence Strips
• Table Top Sentence Strips
The thoughtful letter has these parts:
The body or main message of the letter includes:
•a thoughtful question about another person
•something you think the person might want to know about you
•a hope or wish for the other person
After planning, writing a 1st draft, revising, and writing a final draft, the students share the letters with each other.
