Letter Writing: Friendly & Business

English Language Arts, Grade 4

There are two kinds of letters: friendly and business. A friendly letter is sent to a family member or friend. A comma is used after the salutation, and the person just signs without typing his or her name. A business letter is sent to someone you don’t know well. It differs from a friendly letter in that it includes an inside address and a colon is used after the salutation. Cody 315 Betterin Road Matterton, NJ 09876 July 10, 2020 Dear Uncle Robin, I wanted you to know how much I enjoyed going camping with you last weekend. Nothing tastes better than marshmallows toasted over a campfire! The best part was seeing the shooting stars in the night sky. I’ve never seen that before. I can’t wait until we can do it again. See you soon. Love, 315 Betterin Road Matterton, NJ 09876 July 31, 2020 Best Biz, Inc. 1259 Watson Circle Reading, PA 25697 Dear Sir or Madam: Today I received a kite kit made by your company. It’s kit 43897. When I tried to put it together, two of the plastic “B” rods were missing. There was a note that said not to return it to the store but to write to you instead. Please send me two of the B rods immediately. Sincerely, Cody Franklin Cody Franklin heading, which is also the writer’s return address heading, which is also the writer’s return address inside address (receiver’s address that will also go on the envelope) salutation salutation signature signature block closing closing body body Letter Writing: Friendly & Business Visit www.newpathlearning.com for Online Learning Resources. © Copyright NewPath Learning.

Briana Rodriguez Briana Briana Rodriguez 755 Floyd Avenue Brockville, TN 45934 September 14, 2020 Rush School Board 385 Wheaton Center Road Bushkill, NY 15642 Dear School Board Members: I don’t think it’s fair that the students who get picked up from the junior high have to wait until all the buses have left. Usually we have to wait 20 minutes for the last bus to pull out. Why can’t our parents pick us up in the front circle so we aren’t interfering with the buses in the back circle? That simple change would enable everyone to leave at a similar time. Please consider my idea. Yours truly, 755 Floyd Avenue Brockville, TN 45934 September 21, 2020 Dear Francine, Boy, has it been dull around here since you moved away! Do you like your new house? Have you made any friends at your new school? How are your teachers? I miss you. I can’t wait until I can come to visit you and stay overnight. I can do any weekend in October. Call me!
