  4. Correspondence Writing: Pen Pal Letters • Pen pal letters are letters written regularly between two students from different countries and are less formal than business letters. • Includes 5 parts: • Heading, Greeting, Body, Closure, and Signature

  5. Prewriting • This is the “getting ready to write” stage. • Brainstorming occurs to help with choosing a topic. • A purpose is decided and the audience is considered. • Graphic organizers are used to organize ideas.

  12. Drafting • GPS:ELA5W1. The student produces writing that establishes an appropriate organizational structure, sets a context and engages the reader, maintains a coherent focus throughout, and signals a satisfying closure; the student b. Writes texts of a length appropriate to address the topic or tell the story. C. Uses traditional structures for conveying information (e.g., chronological order, cause and effect, similarity and difference, and posing and answering a question). • PLO: Students will use their graphic organizer to write their first draft.

  13. Correspondence Writing: Pen Pal Letters • Pen pal letters are letters written regularly between two students from different countries and are less formal than business letters. • Includes 5 parts: • Heading, Greeting, Body, Closure, and Signature

  14. Drafting Drafting is forming ideas into complete sentences or thoughts. The draft is labeled rough draft. Skip lines to leave space for editing and revising. Don’t worry about punctuation, neatness or spelling.
