PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is an original Christmas writing ‘craftivity’ with a twist! Your students will delight in inventing the most unpleasant, yuckiest or downright boring presents to receive at Christmas. Is it a parcel of monster toenails, a rotten Christmas ham or a bicycle with no wheels?

Together with the class, brainstorm possible ideas and excellent describing words. Use this opportunity to revise persuasive techniques: rhetorical questions, high modal and emotive vocabulary and use of tone. Demonstrate writing a short persuasive piece on why the reader should not open the present.

Examine the facial expressions on the front cover. Look at positioning of the mouth, eyebrows and eyeballs. Construct a facial expression out of black construction paper to glue onto the present. Decorate the present and attach the gift tag to display.

This resource has:
• Three templates of a present to decorate
• A gift tag writing template
• An example response
