Writing Good Emails (K-2)
Students explore the components of a well-written email. Students learn that such emails have a 5-part structure that is similar to that of traditional letters. Students then analyze the parts of an email, making note of the subtle differences. Lastly, students try to identify and correct seven errors in an email, keeping in mind five proofreading guidelines.
Students will be able to ...
- identify the five main parts of letter/email writing.
- compare and contrast the format of letter writing to that of writing emails.
- proofread a draft of an email.
