Dear Friends,

All of you want to go to some pretty cool places!

This week I want you all to get creative. Imagine you have an imaginary friend. What is their name? What do they look like? Are they big, small, colorful or crazy? What are some of the things you would do together? Do they eat food like you and me? What is their personality like? Are they funny, happy, adventurous, shy? Tell me about your imaginary friend!

My imaginary friend is a funny, purple-shelled turtle who likes to sunbathe on the beach!

I look forward to seeing your letters, drawings and jokes. Make sure you include your first and last name, grade and school on your letters.

Your Friend,

 



Matt
