Imagine a writing assignment that allows your students to write to a professional hockey player with hopes of receiving something in return. This package contains all the do's and don'ts when it comes to writing fan mail AND getting things in return. These tips helped over 50 of my former students receive mail from their hockey idols. What about the kids that don't like hockey? Well, there are ideas included to get them interested in writing a friendly letter, too! Pre-teaching graphics and writing checklists are included! Lesson can be completed in a day or stretched out over several days. This activity is suitable for grades 3-6.
