monday letters

Join me every other Sunday to share your letters.
Write to people or inanimate objects and then link up below.
Don't forget to leave some love for the other Letters Bloggers!

Dear Readers,
I'm totally on break...a day late on the letters, even! Thank you for helping me create such an amazing community around our blogs! I love the friendships I've made because of BigTime Literacy and wish you all a very Merry Christmas!
Love, Michelle

Dear Mentees A & G,
You are the highlight of my year, this year. Thank you for sharing your first years with me -- you make me a better teacher through our collaboration and I really enjoy the moments we spend together. Merry Christmas, Newbies!
Hugs, Mentor

Dear Amazon,
How I love thee. Two day Prime Shipping? Yes, please! And I can avoid all the traffic and crazy crowds!

xo, a happy shopper

Dear Nutcracker,
I loved the dancing and the glitter and the ballet shoes tapping on the stage. My first trip to the ballet, success!
Sincerely, your newest fan

Dear Self,
Perhaps you can try and *not* fall next time you sign up for a month of Crossfit? Foot is still weird and I'm thinking maybe a doctor's visit would be a good idea. Sigh. If only there were time!
Sincerely, a last-minute Christmas person

Dear Teacher Friends,
If you're not writing letters with your students, I highly encourage you to do so. One of my favorite things is to write letters with students, and then bind them into a lovely book to save memories for years to come. It really is the best gift we can have kids give us, and authentic literacy, too!
Sincerely, Writing Teacher

Dear Jennie and Jill,
Thanks for being so awesome to work with, and creative, too. I love your little Christmas clever and cute!
Merry Christmas!

Love, Michelle

That's all for me...please write your own letters and link them up with me!

Merry Christmas!


  1. What did we ever do before Amazon Prime??? Happy Monday!

  2. I'm a huge fan of Amazon, too! Happy Holidays and be careful with your foot, Michelle! :)

  3. Did you write letters with your middle school students too? I can't imagine keeping up with them when I have 90+ students. I love the idea of it, but I feel like it would get pushed aside in lieu of grading ALL THE TIME. Thoughts?
