Letter writing

Here is a friendly letter,

 

Dear Priya,                                                                                                                                                    January 27th 2018

The sweater you knitted for me this birthday is great! It has been cold here and I found it very useful. It is a very thoughtful gift from you. And what’s more , it fits me perfectly. Thank you for this wonderful gift.

Love

Viji

The letter has five parts to it

The Body : The sweater you knitted for me this birthday is great! It has been chilly here and I found it very useful. It is a very thoughtful gift from you. And what’s more , it fits me perfectly.

A letter writing activity can be built by asking the child to proof read an already written letter (Punctuation, Spelling, Capitalization, add a line).  Circling the parts of a letter to understand the structure better. The child can also do a practice letter to understand the purpose of the letter, by answering questions based on the letter. Eg: What gift was you given, who gave  the gift, what did the writer like about the gift, why was the gift given?

Writing a draft and then revising the draft letter maybe the initial exercises of letter writing.
