Another one of the writing activities for our Spider Theme was
to write a letter telling someone why not to be afraid of spiders. The
children wrote some very convincing letters and I often receive emails
from people who are afraid of spiders and found our letters to be
helpful to them.
children were taught personal letter writing techniques and had a
choice of which style they used. You may notice
there are two styles of letter, one where the first line of the first paragraph is
indented to start at the end of the greeting, (the older style) and the other where a line is missed between
the greeting and the first paragraph and each paragraph after that (the style
used when using a computer etc).
To show the proper style I have given each
letter its own page. See if you can pick which style each one uses. Click on the student's name to read their letter.
