First Day Letter
Grade Level(s): 3-5
Submitted by: Penny - Grade 5

On the first day of school, I have a letter ready for each child. Although the letter is the same, each is addressed with the child's name. In the letter I introduce myself, talk about my family, my summer holidays and my hobbies. I then ask them to write back to me and fill me in on them. The students are very interested in the personal life of the teacher at this age. The letter back gives a review of the "friendly letter" format, gives me an overview of their writing ability and an insight into the child as well.
