Grade 2 students put their writing skills to real-world use when they wrote persuasive letters to businesses throughout the country. Students first learned the format of letter writing and how to present arguments in a constructive and positive manner. They then chose a business they wanted to persuade to keep or add a product. Students first complimented the company, then presented their opinion and gave reasons why they held this opinion. They closed their letter thanking the company for their time.
After researching the corporate address and mailing their letters, students patiently awaited possible responses. Our first day back from Spring Break was met with excitement when we received our first letters. Companies thanked the students for their suggestions and some even included a coupon or sticker. The students are excited to see how they, as consumers, can interact with businesses in a helpful way!
