{December 16, 2008}   Christmas with your students

Do you celebrate Christmas in your classroom? As here in Argentina classes finished last week, I used half an hour of my last class with my little students to write a letter to Santa. I printed some beautiful stationary with a template of a letter for children to fill in.
I got the idea from here, and I’m sure you can easily adapt it to your students’ needs.

santasletter

Note: Where it says “I always…” students are supposed to tell Santa about their behaviour during the year, and the things they like doing. You can help them by writing words like these on the blackboard:

– share

– fight

– tidy

– study

and many others.

When looking for ideas to design this activity, I also came across these sites, that you may find useful:
