Work on inference skills! Pull a "Please Santa" wishlist letter, read it aloud and have students choose from an array of photos to determine who might have sent it.
When you return from holiday break, you can continue to use it with the "thank you" letter option. (And who wouldn't be grateful for an pre-prepped activity once they return from break?!)
16 photo cards of children playing with common gifts
16 "Please Santa" letters
16 "Thank you, Santa" letters
Bonus activity! Please and thank you writing prompt sheets for your own students!
