Letter Writing Unit

Students began a letter writing unit yesterday by investigating the five most common types of written correspondence. Students learned about:
-friendly letters
-business letters

Students also talked about how emailing and texting have made some written correspondence obsolete.

Students further discussed the proper format for friendly letters and began writing these types of letters today in class. The friendly letters are to the sixth grade class advising them about the transition to the middle school. After a peer editing workshop tomorrow, students will revise and publish their letters before sending them off to the sixth graders.
