Welcome Letters to Students

by Helene Boller
(Batemans Bay N.S.W. Australia)

In the week before school returns I write to each of my students welcoming them to my class, telling a little about what I have done in the holidays and something about what topics we will cover during the year that are of particular interest.

Although I have already met the students during our whole school 'meet your new teacher' session at end of the year, I have found that the students get a real 'buzz' out of receiving a 'snail mail' letter addressed to them.
