  • 1. How do I write a friendly letter? Presentation by Barbara Cloninger-June, 2004 Quiz by Vanda Sue Bell-September, 2005
  • 2. We write friendly letters to people we know well. We might write a friendly letter to our parents, grandparents, or our friends.
  • 3. 311 East Duke Street Stanley, N.C. 28164 August 15, 2004 Dear Phil, How has your summer been? Not too hot I hope. Did you get to visit your grandparents? Did you go on your trip to Toronto as you had hoped? They say Toronto is a beautiful city. This is my second season at Camp Bellaire. I just passed my swimming test. Now I can swim out to the raft and also use the boats. To pass I had to jump into the water with my clothes on (as if I had just fallen out of a boat). Then I had to take them off down to my trunks, even my shoes and socks, and finally swim back to shore. It was tough, but I did it! I’m looking forward to seeing you soon. There is lots of news to catch up on! body Your friend, Mike
