May 11, 2015 - Second Graders Write Letters - Mrs. Iles’ Second Grade Class practiced their letter writing skills by writing letters to Mrs. Burns’ Fourth Grade Homeroom. Mrs. Iles’ students worked very hard on their letters and were very excited to get a response from the fourth graders.
Mrs. Burns’ Fourth Grade Class enjoyed reading the letters from the second graders. They were very excited to respond to the letters they received. This activity has really helped students to see that writing can be fun and it has helped some of our younger students get to know some of our older students. All of these students are anxious to continue with their letter writing until the end of the school year.
