During an English lesson with Ms Anitha, children had an opportunity to learn to write a love letter to their loved ones. They were divided into 2 groups where they were given an envelope which contained 6 steps in writing a letter.
Next, the children discussed eagerly and cooperated among themselves to arrange the cards in order from Step 1 to Step 6. This fun and friendly competition among the groups had the children chattering loudly and excitedly!
After arranging the cards, the children tried to remember the steps as they used all sizes and colours of marker pens to write the steps down on a piece of paper. This activity allows the children to be more familiar with a letter writing experience.
The final stages of this letter writing lesson had the children thinking up and writing their lines on a letter writing template and lastly, being introduced to the steps of getting a letter ready to be posted by mail.
After the children’s enthusiastic writing, they folded their letters into three folds and placed them in envelopes. They sealed it with love and pasted the stamp on the right hand corner of the envelope.
With the help from the teacher, they wrote the address on the front of the envelope. The letters were then collected by the teacher for mailing, and the children were eagerly checking when their loved ones received their letters. It was indeed a fun experience for the children to write their own letter!
