Our 3rd Graders would LOVE to be elves at the North Pole to help Santa. We worked very hard all month learning how to be better writers. While thinking of talents and things that they are good at, they wrote a letter explaining their skills to Santa and why he should "hire" them. It was so much fun-and they were very convincing!
Here are what some of the students in Ms. Thomas's class said:
"Dear school, we have been working on a "Dear Santa" note! We worked 10 days to finish the note!" --Jayden Reynoso
"This has been my favorite project we have done in writing so far. We had a talk about it before we started writing it and that helped us know what to write!" --Leah Tingey
"How we knew how to write the letter is we got to choose out of many options of elf jobs to convince Santa for us to be an elf. Then we did an awesome art and got to take pictures and use that as a face on an elf!" --Aden Shay
