Background For Teachers:
Intended Learning Outcomes:
Print the seven notes used in the story. These can be found on the Cornerstones Web Site. Also print out the friendly letter template.
Cue Set: Either read the book Click, Clack, Moo Cows that Type or show the video of the same name.
Follow up with a discussion that we communicate in lots of ways. We often write notes and letters to let people know what our feelings are and things that need to be done.
Use overhead of the friendly letter template to introduce the parts of a friendly letter.
Hand out to each student a copy of the friendly letter . Work in (pairs or groups) to fill out the parts of a friendly letter. Check back with overhead to make sure they have correctly labeled the parts of a friendly letter.
Have each student choose a farm animal ( it does not have to be an animal from the book). Have each student compose a short letter to Farmer Brown about a problem they would like him to solve.
The students should Pair Share their letter and help each other edit and revise.
The students will then give their letter to Farmer Brown (the teacher) who will then conference with each student about their letter. The letters will be returned to the student who will then publish their final draft on the word processor and then displayed in the room for all students to read.
