Write A Welcome Letter

Entering a new space for the first time is hard! And it can be challenging to know exactly how to welcome someone. Rehearsing welcoming can be a useful way to practice the skill in action. Let's practice by writing a welcome letter!

Write a Welcome Letter!

Download our worksheet and fill in the blanks to write a welcome letter!

Keep Writing!

Prompt your little to write a welcome letter to an imaginary new student or friend. You write one too! First they will write the letter. Then, they will imagine they are the new student or friend and switch letters with you. Then respond to the letter you receive imagining they are the new student or friend. After you both have written, received and responded to a letter have a discussion about how this activity might help them welcome someone to their class and in other settings. This is an opportunity to practice empathy, communication skills, peer support and community building!

Start the Conversation

With increased media attention surrounding immigration, family separations, deportations and asylum seekers, your young ones may have questions regarding this complex topic. Last year, we started the conversation and helped provide your young one with an empathic social-emotional understanding of immigration through story and theatre. This year, we’re going to continue that conversation. This extended video is designed to provide your young ones with information about immigrant and refugee experiences while exploring what it might feel like to arrive and be welcomed to a new place for the first time.
