Letters to Santa

Each year I have my students write a letter to Santa.  I do this for a couple reasons: it is a great memory of kindergarten; it is interesting to see what students ask for; it helps me when I am shopping for children I choose from the Salvation Army giving tree.

I keep the original letter that students write to give them at the end of the year (it typically shows great writing growth!) and send a copy home in the child's folder.

This year I created a little template for students to use.  In the past, I have helped them write the note, or written it out for them to copy from a dry erase board.  This year, I wanted to simplify the process, so I created this template.  You can download it free from my TpT store.  Pictures of my students' writing soon to come!
