It is the time of year when leaners may want to express their appreciation
to friends and family by sending thank you notes or adding a personal
message to a greeting card.
Tutors at Contra Costa County's Project Second Chance have found that
the idea becomes less intimidating when they explain that notes can
follow a formula.
Thank you for the __________.
I really liked it (them) because ___________.
I was so pleased that you remembered me on ___________.
Another idea is to encourage your learner to just write what they want
to say to the person on an extra piece of paper without worrying about
spelling or grammatical errors. Once they have written the note, the
learner and tutor can work together to edit it. Then the learner can
copy it onto the card.
