This was our topic for the persuasive writing. We talked about many good qualities of a great reindeer, and filled out a reindeer job application. Then, everyone wrote a letter to Santa telling why he should choose them to pull the sleigh.
After we were finished with the letter, they made the reindeer and put the two together. This is how they look on our wall.
Here is a list of things included:

Before doing this project, we came up with a big list of 'reindeer' adjectives, filled out a reindeer job application form, and brainstormed some ideas for the letter. Afterwards, everyone wrote their individual letters to Santa.
I have made several fun printables for the children to do in class or at home.
