Make sure you're on the nice list this Christmas by using good grammar! Before these letters to Santa get in the mail, have your students correct all the irregular past tense verbs, irregular plural nouns, and subject-verb agreement IS vs. ARE, WAS vs. WERE, and HAS vs. HAVE. Nothing says Merry Christmas like good grammar!

Friday Journals—kids write a note on Friday to their parents telling what they learned that week. The parents write a short response back to their child, and the child brings the notebook back Monday. Each parent response earns a sticker for the cover. Love it—a great way to practice letter writing, and to get parents involved. Helps the children ingrain what has been taught into their memory too.
