About this resource:
Students cut out and make their own festive doodle art-phone, and then complete the 'Texting Santa' questions and write a 'Dear Santa' letter.
The finished templates are designed to print on US letter size paper and measure 4.8 x 9.5 inches.
1. The doodle page:
Illustrate the 9 festive objects with thumbnail doodles or drawings,
Christmas Tree, Bauble, Angel, Snowman, Snowflake, Santa, Gift, Holly, Stocking.
Three options are included:
- a template with drawings to color (hand drawn by me)
- a template with words to draw your own images
- a blank template for students to make up their own 9 images and words
2. Dear Santa - write a letter
3. Texting Santa - answer his questions (honestly!):
Ho Ho Ho! Have you been good this year?
What would you like me to bring you?
What do you love most about Christmas?
How can you help others this Christmas?
4. A Christmas card template is included, entitled 'appy Christmas' - print on US letter and fold to complete.
5. Photographs of the finished examples, are also included in the pack for you to print and display in the classroom.
Considerations, how to use this activity:
Consider the space around the images you draw
How do the 9 images look collectively?
Is there an emerging theme or style or color?
What colors do we associate with words?
eg Christmas Tree: green
The included example uses felt tips
The completed art-phones will work well pegged up as a garland or can decorate a wall, door or bulletin board.
These templates are designed to print on US letter/A4 size paper
Have a fun Christmas!
