Write a Dear Author Letter
Third graders are familiar with writing notes to their friends and thank you notes to Grandma. But how about writing a letter to a favorite author? This letter writing activity gives letter writing an added dimension; it’s not only what you write that’s important, but how you write it, too. This hands-on-activity gives your child practice in using language for social interaction, while strengthening his writing skills. Plus, it’s a great way to engage your child in a discussion about his favorite author and books!
