    I wanted to encourage my kiddos to keep writing over the summer because some of them were just starting to get the hang of it towards the end of the year and I didn't want those skills to slide. So I gave them stamped envelopes (addressed to the school, because I'm there now for summer school) and fancy printer paper to write to me. I received one (let me preface this by saying sometimes I would talk about taking my pup to the vet for her skin allergies):

    Dear Ms. KC,

    Is your dog still itchy? You are in my heart.

    Love, "Johnny"

    I melted a little bit. :wub: What a pick-me-up!

    Lovely idea.
    It is an authentic reason for writing. Thanks for sharing.

    That is so adorable! We need more of those stories to remind us that *most* of our kids are not like the ones who bullied the lady on the school bus.

    That is so sweet. After school on the very last day I found a note from one of my kiddos:

    Dear Mrs. T
    Thank you for all you have done this week.
    Love, "A"

    I thought that was hilarious since Monday was a holiday, Tuesday was graduation, Wednesday was a fun day/favorite book characters, and Thursday was a half day/party.

    Aw, how sweet! That is one of the things I LOVE about the little ones. They just write you the sweetest notes. I was always given notes about how much they loved me, and how I was so great. I love the idea of sending home the envelope and paper. I am going to do that next summer!
