Letters (Messages/Notes) for Young Learners
 
Hello everybody,

Just a question:  Does anybody know of a website where we can find samples of letters for young children (age 6 to 7)?  

It would be ideal if anyone knew of a printable resource that includes a whole story that is told through letters sent between the characters in the story.  It would be an engaging way to expose students to letter writing.

Thanks in advance!

Edit:  Please note that "letters" here means messages and notes to friends, etc.  IĀ“ve also changed the subject of my post to reflect this.

Thank you for the help Victoria.  I knew I should have made my post clearer.
I meant letters as in messages that we send to friends/each other.

Dear John letters, for example.

Thanks for the assistance anyway!

The story “The letter “ from the book “Frog and Toad are Friends “ by Arnold Lobel might be nice. It tells about how Frog sends a letter to his friend Toad by snail mail (literally) and together they wait for it to arrive. It stesses how great it is to get a letter from a friend, very sweet.

Thanks MarionG!
There are lots of lesson plans connected to that too!
I “m going to try to find a copy at the library. 

Please continue to post more ideas/suggestions, especially ones that may be printable. 
I welcome them!
