Well, the spreading of kindness continues! This time I asked my neighbors if their child had written a letter to Santa. If they did, I asked them if it would be ok if I played "Secret Santa" and leave a letter "from" Santa in their mailbox. If their child didn't write a letter to Santa, I gave them a copy of the template below:
Then I waited a few days, got all of the envelopes and letters ready, and started my deliveries. I went out and about after it had gotten a little dark (just like Santa!) so I wouldn't be seen by the eyes of my sweet little neighbors.
Even though I didn't get to see any of them open up their some-what official letter from Santa, all of my neighbors said it made their child's whole day! I can't wait to do this with my students!!
