I Learned Letters

Found in: letter writing, parent involvement, parent-teacher communication

I help parents connect with their child's school experience by having the students write a letter to their parents each week on the back of my classroom newsletter. In the beginning of the year, the students write a rough draft of three 'I learned' sentences. They must write specific comments about what they learned that week. The class brainstorms ideas and I write a list on the board to help them with their spelling. I edit their drafts and then they copy their sentences on the parent newsletter. As the year progresses, the students write what they learned in the form of a friendly letter using all the steps of the writing process. The rough draft is written on Friday mornings and they publish on Monday as morning work.
