A candy cane border for Christmas Writing. Websterlearning

Interwoven candy canes make their way around this generic holiday writing paper to stimulate your students' best efforts. Have students write a letter to Santa, or perhaps have them write to their parents, a friend, or a relative. Enhance the lesson by having students correctly address envelopes to the person or people to whom they are sending letters. 

Make the lesson even more memorable by making homemade candy canes. If the students are very young, consider making the homemade candies at home and bringing them in. Give each student a candy cane to attach to their letters. If your students are a bit older, consider making the candy canes with their help. More »
