Your students will love making cards, postcards, and letters for their friends, classmates, family members, and teachers during the Christmas season. I have also included a Happy Hanunkkah card, and one with "Feliz Navidad" for some of the ESL students. This product is meant to engage students to continue writing practice.
Do you remember how exciting it was to open a note when you were little? How about when you had a letter addressed specifically to you? Students would love to use an in-class postal service to deliver these cards and letters. In my room I have a small mailbox that students deposit the activities from this resource in. At the end of the day our “mail carrier” delivers the notes. It is so much fun! I’ve included templates for preschool-second grade. I’ve also included colored samples that will help you demonstrate expectations. I like to display the colored samples for students to reference as needed.
Students will adore the beautiful pictures and the colored samples will be the perfect reference.
I have created this resource to be used in your writing centers to help students strengthen their writing skills during this special time of the year.
This resource is part of my FAVORITE growing INTERACTIVE WRITING CENTER on TPT, which you can view by clicking here:

Once you have your center set up, you simply switch out the ready-made activities and samples on your bulletin board making it easy to always have your station in tip-top shape! Make sure to check out the video explanation and visit my blog to see pictures of this product in use in my classroom.
