Friendly Letters?
  • Friendly letters are usually written to share
    information with people we know, such as friends
    and family members.

Heading
  • This part includes your street address, city,
    state, zip code and date. The heading is located
    in the upper right-hand corner of the paper.

5
Salutation
  • This is the letters greeting. It appears below
    the heading and begins at the left-hand margin of
    the paper. It usually begins with Dear and is
    followed by the persons name you are writing to,
    followed by a coma.

6
Body
  • This is the main portion of the letter. This is
    the place where you write information and ideas
    in paragraph form. The body is also the place
    where you ask questions.

7
Closing
  • This is the letters good-bye. These words,
    found near the right-hand margin and directly
    below the heading, are followed by a comma. Only
    the first word of the closing is capitalized.
    You might close a letter with Sincerely yours,
    or Best wishes, or Love, or Your friend.

Business Letters
  • Business letters are written to ask for
    information so we can get something done or to
    solve a problem. We also use business letters to
    offer opinions, to persuade someone to act in our
    best interest, or to convey information.

11
Parts of a business letter
  • Heading
  • Recipient Address
  • Salutation
  • Body
  • Closing

12
Types of business letters
  • Letters of request or inquiry
  • Letters to an editor or official
  • Letters of complaint or compliment
  • Letters of opinion or information

13
Letters of Request or Inquiry
  • In this type of letter, the writer is trying to
    locate information to solve a problem or learn
    more about a topic.

14
Letters to an editor or official
  • In this type of letter, the writer is expressing
    an opinion or a wish about a situation. It is
    sent to an editor of a magazine or newspaper who
    has the power to print the letter for others to
    see. This type letter can also be written to
    someone who is in charge of rules and
    decision-making.

15
Letters of complaint or compliment
  • We write letters of complaint when we are
    unhappy about something and want the receiver of
    the letter to do something about it. Letters of
    compliment are written to let someone know they
    have done a good job or service.

16
Letters of opinion or information
  • This type of letter is written to convey strong
    feelings or ideas about a topic or situation.

17
Heading
  • This part includes your street address, city,
    state, zip code and date. The heading is located
    in the upper right-hand corner of the paper.

18
Salutation
  • This is the letters greeting. It appears below
    the heading and begins at the left-hand margin of
    the paper. It usually begins with Dear and is
    followed by the persons name you are writing to,
    followed by a colon.

19
Body
  • This is the main portion of the letter. This is
    the place where you write information and ideas
    in paragraph form. In a business letter,
    indentions are not used in front of paragraphs.
    Instead, spaces are used between paragraphs. All
    the parts begin close to the left-hand margin.

20
Closing
  • This is the letters good-bye. These words,
    found near the right-hand margin and directly
    below the heading, are followed by a comma. Only

    good closing for a business letter is Sincerely
    yours.

  • August 25, 2005
  • Chris Van Allsburg c/o Houghton Mifflin
    Children's Books, 8th Floor 222 Berkeley
    Street Boston, MA 02116
  • Dear Mr. Van Allsburg,
  • I want to start my letter by stating that I love
    your books! Your books are very interesting and
    fun to read. I made an observation in reading
    your books and would like to ask you a question
    about what I observed. I noticed that in many of
    your books there is a dog pictured. Do you have
    a dog like the one in the pictures? If not, how
    did you come up with that particular dog?
  • Thank you for taking time to answer my
    questions.
  • Sincerely,
  • Sandra K. Ward
