Postcards From America

Persuasive writing from 3/4WG

The Task

In class we read the picture book "Grandfather's Journey" by Allen Say. In it a man leaves Japan and travels to the New World in America. We used this as a catalyst for writing. Imagining that they were the character from the book, students wrote a postcard home to a friend or relative, persuading them that they had to come and visit America too.

They drafted in their writing books and then published them using the ipad app "Steve Parish Postcards". Below are their completed postcards.

We hope you enjoyed reading our postcards
