Writing a Thank You Note

Students are often required to write a formal thank you note as a gesture of appreciation. This is also a part of your Class Visitation project. The note should be short and to the point.

Begin with a formal greeting: Dear Dr., Mrs., Mr., Professor Jones. Identify yourself and tell them that you appreciate their allowing you to visit their class. Thank them and then sign your message. You can send me the message first if you want some editing assistance.

Adjective Word Order.

Here are some good examples from the homework last week on adjective word order (Task 4). We will go over these in class again and discuss the options when using descriptive adjectives. Can you guess who the writers are?

It's an ugly old statue of a stone monster.

It's a small old doll made of clay and decorated with black cloth.

It's a beautiful small sculpture made of well-preserved old clay.

That is a well-preserved mural with many irregular animal designs.

This small wooden figure of an angel is painted with white stripes which resemble white feathers.
