Persuasive Letters to Santa

One of the writing projects the 2Js were working on in December was a letter to Santa.  But this wasn’t a regular Santa letter; it’s a persuasive letter to try to convince him to still send them a present for Christmas even though they’ve been naughty.  After modeled instructions, students completed a graphic organizer that included creative ideas of how they’ve been bad (for pretend, of course!), and then used it as a guide to write their letters.  Below is a slideshow of their project prompt, a student example of a completed graphic organizer, and the letters the students wrote to Santa!
