If students are getting antsy for the holiday break in December, have them try out this creative activity!
By choosing a literary character from a class-read novel, short story, or play (or from something else they've read and liked), students will prove to you they know their characters inside and out: they will write a "Dear Santa" letter AS that character!
It's a great way for teens to think critically about characters' personalities, speaking/writing styles, likes and dislikes, and even, possibly, their beliefs.
This product includes a brief instruction page for the educator, assignment sheet for students, a list of young adult literature characters that might help spark students' imaginations, and four separate holiday-themed stationery sheets.
With four beautiful letter templates for students to choose from, this is sure to be the perfect activity right before the holiday break!
