Letter Writing in First Grade

Our class connected with a fabulous mentor who’s passion is collecting and writing letters. We met monthly and wrote notes, cards, and letters to important people in our lives. Each month we focused on mindfulness and the purpose of writing letters. Kids learned about the postal system, the format of a friendly letter, how to address an envelope and much much more. We all looked forward to these monthly visits and it encouraged us to write and send letters at school and to each other.

  • Working with Renee has been a great experience for all of us. We look forward to her visits, kids don’t think of it as a writing assignment, and getting kids to love writing it always a win win. She brings out the best in all of us!
