Writing a friendly letter

In the book "A Pen Pal for Max," Max writes a friendly letter to nobody in particular.  When he hears back from Maggie, the two become pen pals.  You're going to have a pen pal, too: your parents!  But instead of sending a letter in a box of grapes, you're going to send an email.

Write a letter to your parents about school.  Choose something you have learned or read about lately and tell them about it.  For instance, a story or a book you have read or an interesting thing you learned in Science, Social Studies, Religion, or any other subject.  What would you want them to know about it?  Tell them as if you are Mrs. Sihler teaching it to you.  If you choose a book or story, give them a summary, tell them about the characters, the setting, and what made it so good you wanted to write to them about it.

Remember who your audience is - your parents!
