With Christmas quickly approaching, it’s time to think long and hard about your holiday wishes, compose a letter to Santa and send it off to the North Pole in hopes that he will read it before the big day. You may not know this, but North Pole is a real town in Alaska and home of the Santa Claus House where the Christmas spirit is celebrated all year long. The house was first constructed in 1952 and has seen visitors from all over the world. If you aren’t able to visit the Santa Claus House in person this year, it’s still a great place to mail your letter to Santa.

We know this is a busy time of year, so to help out, we’ve created a template for you, your friends and family to use when composing a letter. To complete the letter, team up in pairs and have one person prompt the other to fill in the missing words. Then read the letter aloud and of course, don’t forget to copy and paste the text into a word document so you can send to Santa at:
