In Writer's Workshop, Mrs. Stimeck's first graders are learning how to write friendly letters. The students are writing letters to the authors of the books they are reading in Reader's Workshop. In our letters the children ask the author questions about the story. They include something new they have learned or their favorite part. We are also so excited to have our very own Pen Pals! All the students wrote friendly letters to Mrs. Porter's first grade class at Franklin School! We are eagerly awaiting their responses!
