Thank You Letter

Part of the Projects at Home Collection

Write a thank-you letter to someone you appreciate, being specific about why, and using your best writing.

To get started with this project, check out this model:


  1. Choose someone in your family or your community whom you wish to thank for who they are or what they do. You may need to search to find the address of their home or their place or work.
  2. Write a letter on paper in your best handwriting, or on your computer or tablet if you can print it at home. Add illustrations if you wish. If you can’t mail a letter, you may be able to email a thank-you letter or send it with another online platform.
  3. Be specific if you can. When you name the details of why you appreciate a person for who they are or what they do, it means more to the person. If you can, share a story of how they or their work have affected you.

Working on Projects at Home is different than working in school.
We do not give you lessons or directions.
We give you models of each project to look at carefully, and then you decide how to adopt the project for your interests, skills, materials, time, and any new ideas you have.
Your project does not have to look like the models—it can be inspired by the models.
If you are proud of what you created, we encourage you to share it online with the hashtag: #ProjectsAtHome.
