Excitement for the holiday ignites the hallways at school. I love this time of the year. Planning lessons around the Christmas theme gives me a much needed spark of creativity. One project we finished up this week was our opinion writing. After reading the story, Peter Claus and the Naughty List, the children wrote an opinion paragraph stating whether or not Santa should remove Peter from the naughty list.
I designed the templates for their writing based on The Collins Writing model.
The children created little Santas holding a list with Peter's name and a place to check mark for the naughty list or nice list. I like that no two Santas look the same. They turned out adorable!
