Giving to Santa

Today we read a few Christmas books and one of the themes was giving back, so the kids wrote about what they would give to Santa! Check out the amazing writing from Ty! Great work! It was great to hear all of the ideas they had, from giving him pets to giving him toys, ask your child what they wrote about today.
