His teacher had put out a message asking for pen pals, and I replied saying my class would love to participate. I hadn't had a response, so I wasn't sure if it was going to happen or not. I was very happy to see that he had written us.
Here is his letter. I am impressed with his artwork and his printing. He is just 6 years old and in Grade 1.
Here are some letters and pictures that my students did for Kanoah. They were very excited about writing to him. This was their first attempt at letter writing. Continuing to write pen pal letters will help with improving the format, content, and quality of their letters.
Writing has been difficult for some of my students. Writing to other students appears to be a great motivator for my reluctant writers. If you have reluctant writers, you might want to consider finding pen pals for them to write to.
