PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Santa and Mrs. Claus need help choosing a vacation destination! They want to take a trip after Christmas. Have your students read the texts to help the Claus's decide which vacation to choose.

Included:
1. Opinion Essay Poster
2. Text 1: A magazine article about 3 vacation destinations.
3. Text 2: Trading cards for Santa and Mrs. Claus; they tell about the Claus's interests, which will help students choose a destination that the Claus's will enjoy. (FYI: I wrote the texts to allow for ANY of the vacation destinations to be selected, although the mountains and the cruise are probably easier to defend.)
4. Writing Prompt & Tips: Explains the prompt and offers tips to help students do their best writing.
5. Graphic Organizer: ORE-RE-REO style
6. Rubric: Based on 100 points, aligned with Common Core / TNReady Standards
