This is something we did in October at school. I LOVE LOVE LOVE writing in first grade. They change so much over the course of the year. This was an assignment where I gave free reign; I just helped with some spelling and told them that a letter starts with Dear. These letters are pretty sweet.
He forgot the word about, so I told him it's okay and to just draw an arrow this time, showing where about should go. :)
