Now, let's have fun practicing letter writing skills. Remember to relate this skill to real life as much as possible so your child sees the importance of writing letters. My kids write Santa a letter every year before Christmas.

He keeps the photograph framed in his bedroom. It will always be a wonderful keepsake. My two middle boys have been big fans of Tim Tebow.
After they read his book, Through My Eyesthey wrote him a letter. A few weeks later, they received a letter and a postcard in the mail from Mr.
