Song For Where To Start Writing Letters
 
"Always Start Your Letters At The Top"
[Tune:"If You're Happy and You Know It, Clap Your Hands"]

Always start your letters at the top.
Always start your letters at the top.
When you write a letter, you'll get better, better, better
If you always start your letters at the top.
