Second Graders Wrote Adorable Letters On Behalf Of Shelter Animals To Get Them Adopted, And It Worked
Kensey Jones, a volunteer at RACC (Richmond Animal Care & Control) and a second-grade teacher, decided to combine their professions to help the animals at the shelter. The second-graders at St. Michael’s Episcopal School in Richmond, Virginia, practiced their persuasive writing by writing letters to help animals get adopted. They were given the task to write from a shelter animal’s perspective to persuade potential adopters to, well, adopt. They wrote cute texts and drew portraits of the animals all by themselves.
