Letter Writing to Published Authors (and tips for getting a response!)

Who doesn't love to get a letter in the mail? I know my students do and receiving an actual letter from an author builds a love of reading too! Use this activity to help students locate contact information for a favorite author and then create a letter to mail to that author.

Once the students have completed the activity the first time and understand the process, this makes a great independent early finisher activity that can be ongoing throughout the year. In my class, we send and receive letters from September until May!
