The Christmas tree went up earlier this week and this weekend we will be making some time to write our letters to Santa. The kids are eager to let Santa know what they want for Christmas, but when it comes to writing a letter they need a little assistance in various areas.
As many of you know earlier this year I shared with you that Cohen is on the autism spectrum and whether you are aware of what some of the challenges can be like with autism the thing you need to know most is, the challenges are different for each child.
We have spent much of this year working on social and emotional therapies with Cohen focusing on specific areas and he has come on in leaps and bounds. So to assist him with keeping on the task of completing his letter to Santa and to assist him with emotional concerns, I have created a Letter to Santa: Creative Writing Prompts Worksheet.
The worksheet will allow him to:
- Plan what he would like to say to Santa with use and assistance of prompts.
- Assist him in understanding the social courtesies and expectations in writing a letter.
- Helps him to focus emotionally on his his strengths and good qualities.
The three points above are issues that can be significantly reduced with some thoughtful pre-planning and breaking the task down to more manageable bite size pieces.
Both Cohen and Sarah will be using these, they are great prompts for any child who needs a little assistance in composing a letter to Santa. If you're little ones are needing some assistance in starting or finishing their letter to Santa I've created a PDF that you can download and use.
