First, we watched Dear Mr. Blueberry, which was a nice introduction....
Next, we watched The Day the Crayons Quit which, if you haven't seen this, is absolutely adorable! This story is a keeper!!
I made this anchor chart, which we took to my neighboring teacher's classroom to read. I wasn't quite sure if she was prepared for us, but the kids found it quite amusing and now want to join me at the Monster Truck show! Yee haw!
Afterward, I used my friendly letter template to model a letter to another teacher.
When we were done, I asked my students to write me a letter about anything they wanted and then typed back personalized letters when I got home. I asked each student to write me back, so we shall see what unfolds!!
