Use this holiday literature activity on one of those crazy days before the holidays when your schedule gets interrupted. Students use a class novel (or any novel they are reading) and choose a thoughtful gift they might give the character. Students show a picture/drawing of the gift and write a paragraph explaining their gift choice.
Add a little twist and ask students to write a thank you note for the gift from the point of view of the character.
