Friendly Letter Format

Heading: Check to make sure you have the correct information on the correct line. It should start at the center and go towards the right side of the paper. In second grade, we often write only the date as the heading. The heading usually contains the address, city, state, ZIP code and the date.
first line - street number and street name
second line - town or city, state and ZIP code
third line - the date

Greeting: Dear So-and-so, ( Always insert a comma after the name of the person you're writing to.)

Introduction: Indent the paragraph. This part of a letter is intended to get the person to want to continue reading and to give an idea as to why you're writing. To be polite, you usually start out talking about the person to whom you're sending the letter. Then you might want to write something about yourself and why you're writing. This can all go in one paragraph.

Body: This is the main part of the letter. It gets to the point of why you're writing Make a new paragraph and indent each time you change the topic you're writing about. This is the longest part of the letter. For second grade, one or two paragraphs is fine. Avoid asking lot of questions. I suggest having no more than two questions per letter.

Conclusion: Wrap it up. Restate a main idea using different words. Be clever.

Closing: Choose an appropriate closing, such as Sincerely,  or Love,    Remember to insert the comma after the closing!  The closing lines up with the heading. Only the first word of the closing is capitalized. (Sincerely yours,    Your friend, )

Signature: Sign your name right below the closing. The signature lines up with the heading and the closing.  If you know the person very well, you can just sign your first name. For school assignments, students are usually asked to use both their first and last name.
