Use this emergent writer template for your students to write a letter to Santa. Much of the writing is already done; students just need to fill in: name, age, hometown and wish list. Beginning writers are supported with the cloze sentences provided. A second version is included with just a blank box to draw a picture rather than write a list. I have my students write letters each year, send home a copy and include the original in their end of the year books that I make.
