Whether it's a thank you note or catching up with family, these worksheets examine letters.

Writing isn't just for school assignments or business reports; sometimes we just want to touch base with a friend or distant family member. Whether it's an old-fashioned handwritten letter or an e-mail, there are still suggested formats. These activity sheets will present your students with different scenarios and ask them to write a specific kind of letter. Tips as to which information should be included are provided, as well as templates for the letters themselves.

We have been writing this format from the day we send a Holiday card to the time you kept in touch with your relatives. While not often seeing as one of the most necessary forms of writing, it has been shown to be the form of writing we often practice the most.
