Second graders at VVE have been learning about communication and how to write different kinds of letters. They have been writing friendly letters, business letters, and this week we began composing digital letters via our email. Ms. Moore created a Showbie class with some different videos and examples of internet safety, digital etiquette, and how to compose emails. We also read the book The Jolly Postman, a little treasure book of many kinds of letters written to different fairytale characters. Students then composed emails to their teachers choosing between different topics, including their preferred recess toys (if they could dream for anything), what costume they might like to wear (if they liked to dress up), or their favorite topics/books for reading. The teachers LOVED reading students' emails, and we look forward to using digital communication. (Since teachers' names are included above, the images of student emails above do not include their names, for the purposes of student privacy.)
