Do you remember writing your letter to Santa Claus as a child? For many, this tradition is today a beautiful childhood memory.
Writing to Santa is not only magical, but it is also beneficial for learning to read. Reading is a complex task to learn and all students face barriers. For 15 to 20% of students, learning to read is even more difficult.
Writing a short text with the help of an adult and then repeating out loud the words many times while following lines and words with your finger is a simple way to bring great cognitive effects!
The letter can be accompanied by pictures cut out from a toy catalog. Other children can practice making draft letters or the letters of their name. Children can draw pictures and, of course, you can take a few minutes to write with them the meaning of their masterpiece.
