He writes his name on every one of them, and I just love seeing that. Names are a big deal.
They often forget to capitalize Dear in the greeting and leave out the comma in various places. I have an idea for practicing letter writing in a way I think your students will love!
One of my favorite read alouds for this time of year is Frog and Toad, Spring!
Toad does not want to wake up from his hibernation and his best buddy, Frog, has to trick him to get him out of bed.
Don't have the book? How cute would it be after reading to partner up the students and have one write as Frog to Toad and the other write as Toad to Frog? Afterward, the students could share out, buddy up and swap letters or just read them in partner groups.
This will be my example! You can also do this following the story, The Letter, from the Frog and Toad series. If you know Frog and Toad well, you will understand about the bathing suit and the cookies!
There are so many creative letter prompts you could assign your students. If they have a journal ready to go, you can use this for Work on Writing during Daily 5 or as a writing station with no prep after the journals are made!
To create a journal, simply copy a cover and a stack of the letter writing pages behind it. Then you can staple it as a booklet or bind it. This is the student journal cover they can color.
Sometimes I assign a certain writing prompt that I want all students to follow, so I also made a class book cover with the item. Slip the colorful book cover page that's included in the clear front pocket and either hole punch the student pages or slip them in page protectors.

What are your plans? I sure wish Spring would hurry up and arrive here. No matter what the calendar says, it sure feels like winter! I can't wait for my Florida trip in two weeks!

The prompts are questions for you to answer about yourself, but many of them can serve as letter-writing ideas and questions you can ask your sponsored child too.
An alphabet is a standard set of letters (basic written symbols or graphemes) that represent the phonemes (basic significant sounds) of any spoken language it is used to write.
This is in contrast to other types of writing systems, such as syllabaries (in which each character represents a syllable) and logographic systems (in which each character represents a word, morpheme, or semantic unit). Okay, let’s be real. You don’t really have to know anybody in boot camp to be able to use these ideas for your letter writing.
In fact, most of these ideas have been inspired by letters that I wrote to my S/O while we were long distance, but not while he was in basic training. Children choose any 10 letters from the letter manipulatives (use foam letters, magnetic letters, letter tiles or other letter manipulatives).
Go through a stack of shuffled letter cards, calling out each letter . Writing employees a thank you note or letter to show your appreciation can go a long way.
But employee appreciation doesn't have to be just a boring "thank you." You can make it fun, customize it, and show efforts beyond the generic employee recognition approaches!
A proper introduction in a letter depends on the purpose of the letter as well as on the recipient. For instance, a cover letter requires a much more formal introduction than an informal letter to a friend or family member.
