Santa was tired of his old red suit. It’s your students' job to help him find a new one that will be “just right” for him! The kids enjoy reading the book, Santa's New Suit, by Laura Rader. They love seeing some of the suits that Santa tried on!

When your kids find out they get to dress him up in a new suit, they will be so excited to create a new suit for Santa! What is great about this activity, is that you get to send it home and let the parents do all the work! When the kids return with their Santa's, you will have a writing assignment waiting for them!

Something else fun to go with this activity is the poetry! We have a created a cute poem: Santa's New Suit, to go with the writing activity! You can read/sing it during Shared Reading and make it into a book! The kids can then create Santa's new suit on their poetry page.
