In each case the children should decide what type of letter would be most appropriate in each case 656 formal or informal? Draw up a chart for each group.
It is very helpful for our students, but I think we need more examples and also how could these letters be evaluated in class.
Thanks so much for putting this together, Michelle. I often refer people to your wonderful site when they need inspiration for writing letters.
A major issue is recycling and energy conservation. Everyone is trying to reduce the amount of energy we use. Look at all the reasons why energy conservation is so important. Then, write a letter to a paper or magazine saying why you believe we should avoid wasting energy. Give examples of how energy can be saved? What measures should we take in our homes or schools? Could anything more be done?
In the learning process, some centers teach children to copy text from the board or use a "fill-in-the-blank" format to help them develop their writing skills. (Most children need some assistance until they reach the fourth grade some children with disabilities need assistance throughout their time as sponsored children.)
You can also send: letters, photos, postcards, greeting cards, coloring pages and paper crafts. However, your child will not receive the original items. The items will be scanned and sent electronically.
Everyone likes receiving invitations. Receiving a hand written letter asking you to a party or a special event makes you feel very special.
Letters of this kind need to be very precise. Arguments should be clearly made. Requests for action should be clearly indicated. From reading the letter, everyone should know exactly what the sender is asking.
Write a letter explaining what liquids and gases are. How do they work? What examples could be included? What would be confusing about them? This would link into the KS7 science curriculum and could act as a revision exercise giving an opportunity for a discussion about gases and liquids.
