Spending the holidays with a loved one that can't be there or having money to pay the bills...these are just a couple of the gifts my students had for their parents during the holidays.
In this writing lesson your students will have a chance to reflect on the true meaning of giving by writing to the prompt: "If I could give you one gift it would be..." You will be amazed by the tender wishes your students have for those they love and parents will treasure this project for years!
Included in this package is a brief lesson plan, a rough draft paper, a blackline master of a foldable gift box, and display ideas.
Duration is up to you, but my students usual took about 2 hours divided over a few days. Remember that feedback is always welcome. Happy Holidays!
