    This has been a wonderful way to introduce email to students. We have never had formal technology instruction at our school before, and my students were very interested in learning how to properly email others.

  2. Amy K. (verified owner)

    I absolutely love using this in the beginning of the year so students understand the correct way to send an email! We can then refer to it throughout the year if they forget 😉

    Thank you for this resource!! So many of my students think email is like a text, instead of a letter. This give them a very concrete way to see what an email should look like and how to write them.

    This was the perfect resource for my 5th graders who have been having trouble discerning between formal and informal settings.

    What an awesome resource to teach students all about email. I used this resource last year with my 5th graders. I loved it so much that this year I will use it with my 4th and 5th grade students. If you are thinking about using this resource…..I promise that you will not regret it!
