Dear Grandpa, 

     Yesterday was Earth Day and I learned how to save the earth at school. I never knew that plastic didn't decay for so many years. I use PET bottles and paper cups every day, and now I realize I have been making so much waste every day. I also learned how to recycle, so I made this pretty postcard with a tissue box to write this message to you.

     Christmas is coming soon, and I can't wait to visit you. See you soon. 

Best wishes,


What did Helena learn yesterday?

  • How paper cups are made

Dear Douglas,

I just read your assignment about Martin Luther King, Jr. I enjoyed reading it, but I couldn’t stop thinking that it would have been better if you had provided more details about his work. You wrote a good summary about Martin Luther King, Jr.’s great achievements, but I couldn't find any of your thoughts on his life. I want you to consider adding your thoughts during the revision period, which lasts until next Friday. As you already know, I give extra points on revised draft, so this is your chance to earn more points for your grade. If you need any help, come and see me. Good luck!

Thank you again for all your answers. I really appreciate it.

Dear Mr. Richardson,

I wanted to say thank you for all your fun teaching about tigers at the zoo summer camp. The two-week-old cubs were very cute to watch. lt was a bit sad to learn that the cubs are surrounded by possible dangerous attacks from leopards, pythons, and crocodiles in the wild. lt was also surprising that a big tiger can eat about 100 pounds of meat in one sitting. I can't wait to come back to the camp next summer. See you next year!

Read the following e-mail.

    Dear Class, 

    I'm writing to remind you that tomorrow morning we'll be having "Show & Tell." You'll need to bring a special object from home that you'll show to the class. You can bring a toy, game, book, or something else that has special meaning to you.

    For example, a student once brought an old movie ticket to "Show & Tell." She explained that it was special to her because she went to the movie with her favorite cousin, who she doesn't see very often. The class liked this very much. A boy last year brought a baseball that he caught at a game. The class liked that, too.

    I'd also like to remind you that you cannot bring pets to "Show & Tell." I understand that your pets are special to you, but they are too distracting to have in class. If you want to tell the class about your pet, then bring something that reminds you of the pet. For instance, you could bring your dog's favorite toy or a can of your cat's food.

    I will see you tomorrow. Don't forget your object for "Show & Tell"! 

    Mrs. Crandell

Read the following e-mail.

Dear Mrs. Simpson, 
     I'm sorry I could not attend the film club meeting today. I had an appointment that my mother wouldn't allow me to miss. I really wanted to go and am sure that I'll be able to make the next one.

     Anyway, I'm wondering which students decided to work on the posters for our next event. As I remember from our last meeting, Janet was interested in making them. There were a number of others interested, too. Nothing was decided, though, and I'm wondering what decision was reached.

     I'm asking because I'm really interested in helping to create the posters. I would be happy to help other students or to work on my own. If there are already too many students working on posters, I'd be happy to do something else for the club. I really like being a member and would be satisfied if I could do anything to help. 

Thanks for your time, Mrs. Simpson. Sorry again that I couldn't attend the meeting.
