Dear Phil,

How has your summer been? Not too hot I hope. Did you get to visit your grandparents? Did you go on your trip to Toronto as you had hoped? They say Toronto is a beautiful city.

This is my second season at Camp Bellaire. I just passed my swimming test. Now I can swim out to the raft and also use the boats. To pass I had to jump into the water with my clothes on (as if I had just fallen out of a boat). Then I had to take them off down to my trunks, even my shoes and socks, and finally swim back to shore. It was tough, but I did it!

I’m looking forward to seeing you soon. There is lots of news to catch up on!

Your friend,

Mike

P.S. Where do we want to get dinner when I get back? MS

heading

The first part of a friendly letter is called the heading. The heading includes the writer’s address and the date. The heading is written in the upper right-hand corner of the page.

heading

Dear Phil,

greeting

The second part of the friendly letter is the greeting. It is written under the heading at the left margin. It begins with a capital letter and ends with a comma.

slide14

What do you want to say to the person you are writing to? We put what we want to say in the body of the letter. The body of the letter is in paragraph form. The first line of each paragraph is indented.

How has your summer been? Not too hot I hope. Did you get to visit your grandparents? Did you go on your trip to Toronto as you had hoped? They say Toronto is a beautiful city.

The closing and signature are the last parts on the friendly letter. Your closing might be:

Your friend,

Yours truly,

Sincerely,

Your son,

The closing is lined up directly under heading. It begins with a capital letter and ends with a comma.

The signature is your name written directly under the closing.
