PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Who says we can’t have holiday fun and meet the demands of the Common Core at the same time! Use this prompt and prewriting organizer to write an opinion paragraph about the type of snacks Santa should eat on Christmas Eve. Students will have to choose their position on the issue, give reasons for their position, and support those reasons with facts and/or opinions. All of these steps are easy for students to follow on the organizer!

I did this with my fourth graders, who don’t all believe in Santa, and they all had such fun with this prompt! The debates in my room were great discussions and it required students to support their reasoning in discussion as well. After students are finished revising and editing, we published our paragraphs on a Santa’s beard template and added the rest of Santa’s face and hat with construction paper. It was a great hallway display! Use the free beard add-on at http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Free-Santas-Beard-Writing-Template-873319.
Enjoy!
