Thank You & Apology Letters (Keena Ford)

Thank You & Apology Letters (Keena Ford)

This project started out as an honesty wall in my future classroom. I imagined it would be a useful thing for my classroom on how to combat the urges to lie, cheat or steal. I had ideas about sentence starters of “How to Take Back Lies”, like Kenna Ford could have used. However, after many different options of what could be useful for my students on that wall, I came up with the idea of “Classroom Thank You’s & Apology Letters” Now my “Make” is sentence starter forms to give their friends or friend-enemies, in the form of letters. I want to have a space in my classroom with an adorable mailbox where students can place their letters into envelopes and leave it in there for me to pass out at the end of each day. I imagine this being for a kindergarten through second grade classroom. This could be easily modified for older grades, where instead of a fill in template, they could write full letters of their own. The point of this would be to open the lines of communication between students, negative or positive, in a healthy way. The power of writing helps students see their own faults, and to connect to something emotionally
