Product Description
I love this lesson because I get to combine many important writing aspects and the students love it because it is something that interests them.

I have them pick a toy or item they want for Christmas break. They then fill out the planning sheet page 3 and 4. Then they write a letter to Santa or a family member trying to persuade them to buy the toy. The students must add a lot of detail to their writing. I also included a sample letter and a template for lower students who need it.

On my last pages I have several pages to choose from to write the final letter. I hope you enjoy using this as much as I do. I love when I can combine things that need to be taught (letter writing, detail, persuasion, etc.) and things kids enjoy (toys) to create a wonderful lesson.
