Hello all, How have some of you taught a unit on letter writing?? What are some fun & interesting ways you have explained writing different types of letters? I want to teach my kids about writing four diff. kinds: friendly letters, persuasive letters, informational letters & thank you letters. I know I'll probably do most of my teaching through shared writing & interactive writing of real letters, but how do you teach the formats? Who do we write persuasive letters to? (political leaders, the principal, mom/dad). I just need some real fun & cool ideas to make this unit fun!!!
