First Grade Penpal Letters

In my EDUC 3321 Integrated Language Arts Methods class, we are writing penpal letters with two different first grade classes at a local elementary school. This week, we are writing four identical letters to four unknown students. A basic letter of introduction of ourselves and begin the conversation for our first graders to respond to.

The idea is that the students will respond and gain experience in writing for purpose and we will have the opportunity to learn more about the development of these little writers. Over the semester, we will have different assignments that we can use these letters written to us. It is a wonderful assignment for all who will be participating. I am looking forward to receiving my first letters. I will be sharing this experience here on my blog and what I learn about them.

Until next time..
