This is the perfect lesson to wrap up the days before the holiday. This lesson has been a favorite of myudents for years. The situation is that their mom has been called away on business and they have to do all of the shopping! The lesson includes shopping worksheets, graphic organizers, a PowerPoint, and rubrics. This is all you need to teach a fun and engaging lesson on writing when all they want to do is think about the holidays. Students have to think critically to get this job done and they love the process.
