Please don't expect the letters to be edited perfectly. The students will spend time editing each week, but they are not edited by a teacher. We will hold the students accountable for more and more writing mechanics as the year goes on.
We hope that you will take some time to respond to your third grader's letter. It's a great chance to build communication and model a strong purpose for writing. In addition, you can model many of the editing skills that your child's letter may currently be missing. Besides, the kids can't wait to read your responses!
