Dear Mr.Grinch,

December 11, 2015 — 3 Comments

GrinchHere’s a pretty cool end-of-year activity for homeschool.

The general idea is to write a persuasive text trying to convince the Grinch that Christmas needn’t be dismal or not worth celebrating.

I only used the premise of this idea as a finisher for the day. There is, however, an activity packet available on Teachers Pay Teachers (link).

This is what our youngest came up with:

Border letter to Grinch Without name

“But Jesus called them to him, saying, “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.”
(Jesus, Luke 18:16-17, ESV)
