My Classroom Christmas Tree
On Monday, my students all wrote letters to Santa. They were really cute. It really surprised me how many of them are concerned with their "Good List"/"Bad List" Standings. I forgot what a big deal that was/is :) Here's some of the quotes-
From my math genius so this didn't surprise me...
Am I on the good or bad list? I think I have been good 51/100 of the time and bad 49/100, but that's still mostly good so am I good?
From a kid who probably should be worried about his standing with Santa... :)
I've been good for the last 6 days so I'm wondering if you could get me ....
And I loved this justification.
From the sweetheart of the class...
I think I am on the good list because I helped my mom cook dinner last night.
From the flirty kid from a few posts ago...
Dear St. Nicholas,
Hello, it's me. I have been mostly good this year. My brothers are the bad ones. You know what I want so I won't bother writing it.
haha good luck Santa.
I also loved the boy who wrote about the different guns he wanted and then finished with "but you can get me anything. Just not girl stuff."
And the letter that wins the Most Likely to Depress Santa Award has to be (and enjoy the spelling :):
Dear Sana Claas,
You are the nicest purson ever. And the elves. Plus the raindeer. I have a question for you. Are you always going to be the same Santa. Or are you going to die? Please write back.
I think I would have waited to write that letter until after I had received my presents Christmas morning. But so cute. Hope you enjoyed :)
