I have a freebie for teachers still in school this week or save for next year.
After reading How Santa Got his Job,
I had the students fill out this elf application from the First Grade Parade.
Then we brainstormed what would make an elf desirable for hire. They came up with such adorable ideas!
Next, the students used this graphic organizer to explain why they would make a good elf for Santa.
The next day, the students wrote their final draft on this paper.
I thought this opinion writing piece turned out adorably! Click here for this freebie. Leave me a comment if you can use it!
