This is a power point that I created to go along with a freebie from TPT. I downloaded the activity from Nicole Shelby's store. It has a variety of materials that you will need to go along with this power point. Nicole created a letter to set up the problem and also included templates for students to decorate a "new suit" for Santa. The final portion of the activity is for students to write a persuasive essay. This is where my power point would be useful. The power point that I created will help your students know what to include in their letter to convince Mrs. Claus and Elvin to choose their Santa suit design. It gives them specific instructions about how to write effective persuasive essays and the order in which they should include those things. It gives students the opportunity to brainstorm with their group by evaluating the letter that is included in the freebie download. If you download this writing activity this power point is a GREAT addition to your lesson! Thank you for considering my products. THANKS to Nicole Shelby for this amazing freebie!
