Christmas Countdown and Santa Letter

Christmas Countdown and Santa Letter

Christmas in Grade 1 is so much fun. Yeah, it gets a little crazy sometimes, but mostly it's all good:)

Tomorrow we're going to be writing our letters to Santa. 

In the past I've walked the children to the "Village" to mail their letters. It's a VERY exciting walk. My new school is a little further from the mailbox but I'm hoping with a couple of parent volunteers to help keep the kids "in line", we'll be able to manage.

Here's the letter template we're using. I got the clip art from My Cute Graphics.

The empty box at the bottom is where I print the child's full name and address so that Santa knows where to send his reply!

We're also starting our Santa countdown calendars. 

I found this cute one on-line. Sorry, but I couldn't find a source to credit it.

The kids will print their own numbers from 1 to 24 in the circles. 

This is great practice for them because most of them still have a couple of reversals.  

As each day goes by we'll put a cotton ball on the date. Nothing new here :)  but the kids LOVE this!

  1. Walking to deliver letters to Santa sounds like so much fun! And I really like the poem sequencing. That's a great way to do it. Thanks for sharing.

  3. When I read this, my first thought was "Ahhh, I need to slow down. I need to teach +1 and +2 instead of addition facts to 20." Now that I think about it, it's quite crazy what I was doing. You are always bringing me down to earth Barb and helping the kids in my room. Thank you.

    Off to find out if we are 'allowed' to write letters to Santa!
