As I mentioned earlier, I love the holidays. I also love teaching writing, and the holidays are a time where I can get students really excited about writing...even when their minds are already on winter break. One project I love to do is the interview with Santa. It gives us a chance to discuss perspective taking, and some years I get a reporter to come in and talk about his or her career with us. It is SUPER fun, and the students love it.
I have posted my file for this project on TpT. You can get it here!
