Writing With a Purpose

Third graders read "Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse" as a class. They brainstorm reasons for writing a letter to someone they know and discuss how the character in the story felt after writing the letter to her teacher. To end the lesson plan, they write a letter to someone they have been upset with after completing a graphic organizer.

Melanie B.
I have found some wonderful resources to use with my students through Lesson Planet. I am a former public school teacher who has taken on a private home school in order to meet the needs of those students who are not being served properly in the public school setting. I want to shift the focus from standardized tests back to LEARNING.
