CISM follows the Common Core Standards for English Language Arts. The subject focuses on four main areas, namely listening, speaking, reading and writing. In Grade 2, the children have been practicing to express their ideas in writing. They are encouraged to add as many details as they can to make their compositions more interesting. Likewise, they are asked to keep writing until the given time is up in order to develop their writing endurance.
Since Christmas is just around the corner, the children were asked to write their individual letters to Santa. They were asked to include three things that they would like to get this Christmas. They were also encouraged to add reasons why they should receive a gift from him, or why they wanted to have a particular gift. Read what they have to say and if you were Santa, would you be convinced to give them one of the gifts in their Christmas list?
