This project is a perfect Writing activity as a follow up to the story "Truffle's Christmas" by Anna Currey. A great lesson about wants and needs for the holidays! Students write words and draw pictures to 'tell' Santa their choices for each. In the book, a little mouse named Truffle wants a hula hoop to play with, but his family REALLY needs a blanket to stay warm. Truffle struggles with what to ask Santa for in his Christmas letter. Santa knows how hard he thinks about it, and grants him and his brothers and sisters both wishes! I use this activity every year and my students love it!
