Christmas Opinion Writing* Christmas Writing * Christmas Activities : This all inclusive, fully scaffolded persuasive opinion writing project taps into your students’ enthusiasm for Christmas, making them not only willing to write, but excitedly so!

The project can take the form of a five paragraph letter to Santa for younger students, or a five paragraph essay or letter for older students. Older students can address their parents or a general audience attempting to convince them that they are worthy of receiving gifts this Christmas.

In this packet you will find everything you need for a fun and successful project: teacher and student instructions, graphic organizers, an editing checklist complete with a list of the most commonly misspelled words, a scoring rubric tied to the Common Core State Standards, and thematic paper to use for publishing. Best of all, this highly scaffolded project insures success for all and is perfect for substitute teachers!
