Wacky Week Wednesday – Universal Letter Writing Week 1/8-14


Get your stationery ready; January 8 – 14 is universal letter writing week! What an excellent opportunity to practice letter-writing skills. Receiving a handwritten, friendly letter in the mail would be a surprising treat for a friend or family member. Or your students could send a business letter to thank a local organization in your community.
