I thought for this post we could practice an EQAO writing task as well as get some of our thinking about this series on paper.

I would like you to draft a letter to Margaret Peterson Haddix about her books in The Shadow Children sequence. This should be in a semi-formal or friendly letter format. In the letter you should explain your reasons for writing, what you specifically like about the books and characters as well as questions you might have.

Remember the format:

 1. Salutation 2. Introduction 3. Body of letter (power write these 3 paragraphs) 4. Concluding sentence      5. Closing.

I’m looking forward to your letters.
