- an itsy bitsy letter from a friend in college
- a gigantic letter on newsprint in return to that friend
- an extra long letter formed by taping together the cut-up lines of a regular letter
- letters on leaves
- the letter he sent me in a plastic bottle last week
- messages written on huge sheets of cardboard and then cut into postcard sizes to mail separately, forming a large puzzle
- letters on creatively constructed stationery, using a copy machine to reproduce things like leaves
- a letter from his sister when she went to summer camp
- a letter from his mom when he was in college
- letters written in code (backwards, upside down)
- letters folded into their own envelopes (which he taught everyone to do, including all the adults)
The way he decorates his envelopes inspired guests to try their own! Inspired describes each child and adult in attendance. There were gasps for each new thing David showed and shared. They gladly grabbed large newsprint sheets, postcards, ready-made turtle stationery, and envelopes to begin writing letters at home.
The thank you letter my teaching partner and I sent him today is one of my favorite creations. I'm ready to write a mile-long letter to my nephew.
