I just got thank you letters from the two fifth grade classes I spoke to for Young Author’s Week.
Wow, they certainly did make me smile! Fifth graders can be so sweet and so cute. Sure, there were a few letters that I could tell were being written because the kids were told to write a letter. But quite a few of the letters really seemed sincere, as if the kids truly enjoyed our time together.
Perhaps the most surprising thing is that based on the comments, the students liked the writing exercise I had them do–which had been my husband’s idea.
P.S. Okay, I’ll admit it. I also love when the kids say they enjoyed reading my books, or that they can’t wait to read them. But honestly, is that surprising?
