HELP WANTED! Holiday Writing Activity Freebie


Santa needs help! You know how busy it must be at the North Pole this time of year-so... Santa is now accepting applications for some additional holiday help! Well, my lil first grade elves were just dyin' to let Santa know why this is the job for them! Just check out this...
I just love her 1st sentence! Who doesn't love making dollars and cents!?! Too cute! My friend Danielle passed along a version of this activity that she was doing with her 3rd graders. I just reworked it a bit (just to make it a lil bit easier for my firsties) and added a little holiday picture. Just so happened, we had a little visit from Santa today so I was able to snap a quick pic of each of my kiddos with him! (Worked out pretty good!) We are really working on writing good sentences so after filling out the top part of the application, they had to write 3 good sentences. (A "Good Sentence" must have capital letter, word spaces, punctuation AND make sense! I think I repeat this about a bazillion times everyday! lol) Well, they turned out so stinkin' cute that I decided to hang them in the hallway for all to see! Also, made a cute lil "Help Wanted" Ad (sign) to hang up with them.
If you would like a copy of this lil holiday writing activity FREEBIE, just leave me a lil holiday shout-out & then click HERE or on the top pic!
Hope your kiddos love it too!
