Okay, this isn’t exactly addressed to ME, but I got a complete kick out of it. The marvelous Michele Meyer, reading specialist at Botkins Elementary in Botkins, Ohio, does a “Hats off to Hattie” unit each year. This year, kids were asked to write a postcard in the voice of a literary character — this young lady chose to write as Hattie, to Aunt Ivy.
|I hope she got an A+ on this assignment
In case you can’t read the postcard, here’s what it says:
Dear Aunt Ivy,
I’d like to start off by telling you my domestic skills have improved greatly. I can make quilts and cook. My crops are growing and I am making out greatly and I still have time to follow through with my Christian duty.
Your successful Niece Hattie
