"Yellow Pages" for a New Neighbor
Whether they know it or not, fourth graders are natural authors. They’ve got lots to say, even if it happens to come with fearless spelling sometimes. And every time they create a sentence, whether it’s for a card, letter, shopping list, or complaint to you, they’re expanding their reading and writing skills.
Here’s an activity that lets your fourth grader take his writing skills beyond the classroom, and into the community, by offering a warm, compassionate greeting to a new neighbor…who may turn out to become a very good friend, too.
What You Need:
- Yellow copy paper or construction paper
- Colored pencils, pens, and markers
- Phone book with Yellow Pages
