Pre-Chat Letters to Zlata

Pre-Chat Letters to Zlata

Written by Delmar Elementary School Students

Dear Writers' Corner friends,

Several Delmar students are reading "Zlata's Diary" and have written letters
to Zlata that we hope she will eventually receive.


Dear Zlata,

     I am reading your diary ( book ) and it is very sad . My name is Anna
and I am a sixth grade student at Delmar Elementary School and I am 11 years
old and I have 1 brother and 1 sister . I would like to know how it felt like
to be in the middle of a war . I wouldn't know because I have never been
through it before  . Do you go to school ? My mother is from Ukrain (I guess
that is how you spell it ) but she was born in Philidelphia of the US.
I have a friend whose mother was born in Cuba and lived there for awile . It
must have been hard living almost about 3 to 4 years through a war . I would
hate to have that happen to me .  Well my time in computer is up but I will
write back very soon .

P.S. Cheer up !
                 Your Friend ,
