Thank You Cards
I’m a big letter writer and LOVE teaching kids about writing. One of my favorite things to do is teach about writing a thank you card. We begin in our WN (writer’s notebook) and have a section toward the back of the notebook dedicated to the thank you cards we will write throughout year. As a class, we brainstorm about our thank you cards. Who is the card for? Why are we thanking them? Kids write their what they are going to say in their WN – checking for punctuation, spelling and sentences that make sense. Reading our words out loud helps us in the editing process. We also talk about what greeting cards look like and why people buy a card in the store. Color, design and effort are all ingredients that we add to the cards we create. Our cards are completed over the course of a week and are AMAZING. I will deliver our first batch of cards to 826michigan on Monday!
