Skill: Practice in writing a friendly letter.
Even though we now communicate electronically, students still need to learn the basics of letter writing. In this assignment students will write to service men and women stationed over seas. This is a very nice activity to do before Thanksgiving or Christmas because no one likes to be away from home at the holidays. In addition, students love to receive letters. Below are addresses from Dear Abby for writing to people in the armed services around the world.
Suggestion: Have the returned letters sent to you at the school. I suggest this for two reasons. First, some parents may not like having a stranger having their home address. Secondly, the students will be able to share their letters by reading them to the class.
