Our class, along with other classes in the school, are writing letters to soldiers abroad for Christmas time. Today I showed the video "To Our Troops" which is on the front page of goodfellowps.com. Afterwards we wrote letters to the soldiers (signed with their first name only).

Learning goal:
We are learning to write a letter with the purpose of sending it to a Canadian Soldier for Christmas.

Success Criteria to meet my goal:
-I can write the date.
-I can write the greeting (Dear Soldier,)
-I can introduce myself by telling my first name, age and what grade I am in.
-I can tell what I like to do at school.
-I can wish the soldier a Merry Christmas.
-I can write "Yours truly" followed by my first name.
-I can edit my work (capitals, periods and spelling).
