Through this activity, students will utilize vocabulary and grammar concepts to write a letter to Santa Claus/ Papa Noel/ San Nicolas IN SPANISH. Students will not only practice writing a properly-formatted letter (which is cross-curricular with ELA), but they will also utilize the vocabulary for disccusing what they already have have, what they want want, what they need, and what they like. This is a great activity to do with students leading up to Christmas (epecially on those shortened days where students seem a little off because of the pre-holiday break excitement). These letters can also be brought to the nearest Macy's for their Believe campaign in which they donate $1 to the Make-A-Wish foundation for every letter they receive. Doing so is a great opportunity to teach your students about helping out in their communities.
