We are going to be writing Santa Letters when we get back from Thanksgiving Break. I created a pack last year for the Santa Letters and the kids get to decorate a Santa. The lesson takes about 5 days and we used the Notebook File on the Smart Board to learn about the parts of a letter including the date, greeting, body, closing, and signature. Here is a slide from the file.
Then the kids got to practice…
We then planned what we wanted to say to Santa.
We wrote a rough draft and then a final copy.
And then we each made a Santa! They can choose from:
Punk Rock Santa

They turn out so cute. We really focus on letter writing and the parts of a letter for this activity. Then, we send our letters over to the middle school and some older kids write a letter back to each student. My kids LOVE to get a letter back from Santa’s Elves!
