Formal letters

posted Jan 20, 2013, 9:09 PM by Jason Brunken
This week, the Grade 6 class will be working on and completing formal letters. These are also sometimes called business letters. Formal letters are what we write to people we don't know or those who are of a higher social standing than us. This writing lesson teaches the children a valuable skill that they will be able to use throughout their academic and professional careers.

Students will write a letter to someone in a career to which they aspire. The person can be famous or unknown, but it must be someone who is currently doing a job in which the student is interested. Students will inquire about skills, education, and activities they can work on now to help them be successful in that career.

The materials students received for this lesson are attached to this post. They can also be found on the documents page here.
