Celebrating Letter Writing


Letter writing may be a dying art, but it's still important to know how to communicate, whether by email, text, tweet, note, OR letter. Need a model of how to? Check out this poem, "Sincerely" by Robyn Hood Black. Here, the narrator in Jenny G's video has really captured the spirit of the poem with such a great smile and clear enunciation. And don't miss the hilarious blooper bits too!


You can share this lovely poem next March during National Write a Letter of Appreciation Day or ANY DAY when you want to nudge children to try writing someone they care about. You'll find a Pocket Poem card version of this poem at Pinterest too right HEREWe have a whole "board" of CELEBRATION Pocket Poems there to share and enjoy. Just click HERE.

SUPER cute! And the bloopers send the message that mistakes are more than OK--they're a terrific part of the whole fun process!
