    Letters From Felix
    By Carrie

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I love to introduce letter writing using the book Letters From Felix. In the book, Felix (a stuffed rabbit) writes letters to his owner about all of the different places around the world he is visiting. The envelope is glued to the page. You can talk about how he correctly addressed the envelope. When you look inside, Felix has written you a letter and sometimes includes a picture. Students really love to see an "actual" letter from Felix. That leads them to write a response to Felix.

    A friend once shared this idea for teaching the parts of a letter. Draw a man with a top hat and coat. Label his hat "Date" because the man is getting ready for a date. Label his mouth "Greeting" because he has to think of something to say when he sees his girlfriend. Label his coat "Body" for all that they will talk about. The "Closing" is used on his shoes because he walks her to her door and must say goodbye. The "Signature" can be footsteps walking away.

    Really cute! Hope this helps!
