Because We Love Children

A Letter for The Teacher

As school fast approaches, parents, teachers, and kids enjoy the last long days of summer while preparing for the new school year. I will be teaching third graders 2 days per week. I decided this year to have each child fill out a letter to me in class to help me to get to know them a little better. Feel free to use this as is or tweak it to your needs.

You could use this letter form as a parent and send it with your child to school the first week. Or if you’re a teacher like me, you may want to number the blanks and have the kids give you suggestions which you can write on the board to help the children with spelling. I plan to read the letters, give the children credit for completing them, store them, and return them at the end of the year for the children to keep. Happy writing! Here’s the format:

Dear _________________________________________________(teacher’s name),
