Have your students choose a gift they would buy for a friend, family member or teacher for the holidays.
They could choose a teacher who they appreciate and write them a letter of thanks. Then deliver to that teacher!
Spread cheer throughout your classroom by having students perform good deeds for each other and record them on an ornament.
Our school also used a version of these to write special holiday notes to the senior citizens at the nursing homes in our town. The students really enjoyed making them and, although I didn’t drop them off, I know they made a huge impact on those who received them. (We did need to take out the ones that said “I hope you make it to Christmas” – eek!)
Also included is a gift template. Students color in the gift then attach the writing box, in which they describe a gift that they would purchase for someone who is special to them.
All of the pages are in black and white. This way you don’t spend a fortune on ink and students can decorate to their heart’s content! And it is free until tomorrow morning! Click here or on the picture to grab it from my store.
