Letters to My Kids: March 2013

This month, I wrote one letter to my sponsored children. I was extra busy this month and I usually write an email and a handwritten letter. This month, it was just an email.

I wrote an email about my typical daily schedule, including what I do with my students at school. Here is the letter I wrote:


Hello, my friend! I greet you in the wonderful name of our Savior, Jesus Christ. I hope God has been blessing you greatly and that your family is doing well. Today, I want to write you a letter telling you about what a typical day is like for me.

Each day, I wake up at 5:00 a.m. After waking, I bathe and I eat breakfast. While I eat, I like to listen to music to get my heart and mind ready for my day. After I eat, I brush my teeth and leave for work. At 6:00 a.m, I arrive at work and prepare my classroom for my students to arrive. I spend time preparing my lessons for that day and getting the classroom organized. My students arrive at 7:00 a.m. When the children arrive, they have time to play with toys for about an hour. After the children work together to clean up their toys, I serve them a healthy breakfast. After breakfast, I help the children to brush their teeth. I teach my students that brushing their teeth is very important for their health. Next, we spend time working together to learn as a group. I teach my students about the days and months, colors, the letters of the alphabet, and numbers. After learning, my students have time to play outside if the weather is nice. When we return to our classroom, I serve the children a healthy lunch and then the children lay down to take a nap for two hours. When the children wake up, they eat a snack and their parents come to take them home. My teaching day ends at 3:00. It's a very busy day!

When I return home from work, I like to rest and relax for a little while. Sometimes I take a nap and other times I relax by reading a book or reading the bible. I also like to watch TV or listen to music. Around 6:00 p.m, I eat dinner. My favorite foods to eat are chicken, rice, vegetables, fruit, bread and water. After dinner I spend some time preparing my lessons for my next day with my students. At 10:00 p.m, I wash my face and brush my teeth. I spend time praying to God and then I go to bed.



I encourage you to write a letter like this to your sponsored children. They will probably love to hear what your typical day is like. Who knows, your child may feel inspired to write to you what their typical day is like.

Honestly, I thought that I had asked my children to share a typical day with me, but now that I've copied and pasted the email, it looks like I didn't. Sad.


  1. I really liked this idea when I read it on OC & I think I'll steal it for my April letters:P great letter!:)

    1. I'm so glad to be able to help. I love sharing the letters that I write to my kids.

  2. I remember seeing you post this on OC and I LOVED the idea but totally forgot about it! Gonna take it for April. I'm having a very hard time thinking of things to write to the kids that I've never heard from. I don't know them so it's just so hard to think of things other than "how's the weather?" and "how's school?" lol!

    1. You are definitely free to steal it!

      Now that I think about it, I don't think I've sent a letter asking about the weather in my sponsored kiddos' countries. Maybe I should!
