Dear Santa ... I Can Explain is a fun holiday or Christmas activity that has students writing a persuasive letter to Santa from the point of view of a well-known villain from childrens' stories, movies, fairy tales, etc.

Writing in role, students must convince Santa that they don't deserve a spot on the naughty list - what they are infamous for has all been a misunderstanding.

This resource contains a full set of instructions, brain storm web, completed brain storm web, pre-writing graphic organizer, 5 different sheets of Christmas stationery, a drawing page, and a completed letter. I have also included a picture of how I display these projects on a bulletin board display.

Note: This resource has been updated to include a rubric as well as b&w copies of all the pages.
