Let’s give those thumbs a rest, shall we? Texting may be the “in” way to communicate, but students can develop excellent composition skills writing old-fashioned letters.
Remember when you actually sat down and wrote a letter (in thanks or just to correspond) to dear Aunt Freda, when you had never heard of texting, or even the ever-popular LOL? We want to bring a creative outlet to your students that doesn’t involve electronics – just plain paper and pen. Here’s the twist: rather than regular notebook paper, your students will create their own stationery for a one-of-a-kind writing experience.
