PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Santa needs your students' help deciding on a new toy design to produce this year! Have your students read and respond to two texts using my opinion essay graphic organizer. Proofread their work, and then give them the cute elf-themed stationery to write their final copies on--perfect for a Christmas bulletin board display! Grade them with the included rubric.
