This unit is perfect for your students to write Santa using sequence and transition words. Furthermore, instead of a traditional letter you can have your students write a persuasive letter to Santa. Your students can try to persuade Santa to give them everything on their Christmas list. I included vertical paper and horizontal paper in case you want your students to write both Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus.
I have included a cut and paste activity where your students can cut out transition words and glue them to the rough drafts.
Some of my students write more than others so I included a longer version of writing paper for the rough drafts and final drafts.
If you look at the pictures you can see that I have included pictures for three crafts, a large Santa, large Mrs. Claus and a smaller Santa and Mrs. Claus. I also have Picture Props!!! I took my students’ pictures using these props and they turned out really cute for our ornaments we are making our parents’ for Christmas! I printed mine in color but you can have your students color the black line versions and they can have their own props!
