Secondary Subjects – None
Grade Level – K – 3rd
Read the story “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” to the class.
Make a copy of the Grinch and make it into a stuffed paper doll (or you may purchase an inexpensive stuffed Grinch). Send the Grinch home with a student each night with a journal. Attach a letter inside the journal from the Grinch. The letter should let the children know that he doesn’t like Christmas and need someone to convince him why he should like Christmas. The children should write a story to the Grinch about the best Christmas they have ever had. They will then return the journal on the next school day and share their story with the class. (Make an extra journal if a child forgets and leaves it at home.) If you have a large class you may want to send home two journals each night.
