Extending this activity

  • -Encourage gratefulness and develop writing at the same time by looking for opportunities to write more thank you notes. Thank you notes can be written after visiting a special place like the fire station or a friend’s house for a play date.

    -Read "Dear Peter Rabbit" (Querido Pedrín) by Alma Flor Ada and encourage your child to notice how different fairy tale characters use writing conventions to communicate with each other.

Adjust for an older child

Invite the older child to participate in writing the high-frequency words he has already learned (you, for, the, etc.) and to share the pen to write beginning and ending sounds in unfamiliar words.

Adjust for a younger child

A child that cannot write letters independently can dictate the message he wants to send. He will become familiar with the conventions of writing letters by observing the parent’s writing.
