In class you each received a letter in which I've introduced myself to you. (If you need another copy, click HERE.)
Okay, now that you know about me, it’s your turn!
STEP 1: Write a letter introducing yourself to Ms. Rush. The letter may be typed or handwritten.
Your letter should be 1 – 2 pages long, and it should begin with a salutation and end with an appropriate closing. (10 points)
Things to include in your letter:
This letter does not have to be formal in tone, like an essay, but it IS the first piece of your writing that I will have the chance to read, so be thoughtful about your word choice and grammar, and look over your work before handing it in. I’m looking forward to learning about you! ☺ - Ms. Rush
STEP 2: Sign up for REMIND, an app that lets us stay in touch throughout the year. (3 points)
