Writing Personal Letters

What can I write about?

  • Updates about school, hobbies or your sports team.
  • News about friends, family or your pets.
  • What has been happening in your street, town or city.
  • Holidays, birthdays, school camps, achievements, anything you think is special or exciting and would like to share.
  • A funny joke you have heard, a good movie you have seen, a fun game you played, or your favourite song, are all great things to write about.
  • Anything new. A good idea is to think about the last time you saw the person you are writing to. This will make it easier for you to tell them about new things that have happened since the last time you saw them.
  • Remember to ask the person you are writing to about what they have been doing and what has been happening in their life.

Poetry

Haiku

Haiku is a form of Japanese poetry. Typically, haikus are written about nature, but they can be about any topic. Haikus have a very specific syllable structure.

The first line of every haiku has 5 syllables, the second line has 7 syllables, and the last line has 5 syllables.

Once snows have melted
the village soon overflows
with friendly children
—Kobayashi Issa (1763-1828)
“Gallery TwentyEight: Transience”

Limericks

Limericks are meant to be funny. The last line of a good limerick contains the PUNCH LINE or “heart of the joke.”

A flea and a fly in a flue
Were caught, so what could they do?
Said the fly, “Let us flee.”
“Let us fly,” said the flea.
So they flew through a flaw in the flue.
