                                               Merry Christmas


Well it is that time of year. We cannot get away from it. Your child

wants to write a letter to Father Christmas and has come to you for help.

This is how you should go about it.



Give pictures to child and tell him/her to choose two or three presents

to ask for. (Give a choice of presents within your price range).



When the child has chosen the gifts you could cut them out to be used in

the letter.



Show the template of the letter and ask the child to fill in the blanks.

Give help where necessary. You may need to make changes to the text.
