With all of the texting and social media that is available today I feel that we’re losing opportunities to engage in good old fashioned writing. We all know that writing needs to be authentic in order to be meaningful but who can we have our children write to? A great way to ensure that writing is authentic is to encourage children to write letters to family members, friends and even celebrities.
Speaking of celebrities, there is a popular series of books about a dog named Danny. (see www.maryruthbooks.com for more information). I just discovered that Danny the dog will “write” a letter back if you write to him. What a great opportunity for authentic writing!
You can write to Danny at:
