This is a mini unit to write letters to Santa Claus! It is based on the Common Core standards for Writing (write about a topic and revise) and Language (use commas in the greeting and closing of a letter).
It includes 10 teaching slides which can be shown on a projector or printed and used under a document camera. The slides explain the 5 parts of a letter and the use of commas in a letter.
There are 5 student pages: 1 worksheet for labeling the parts of a letter and inserting commas, 2 rough draft papers, and 2 final draft publishing papers.
