Santa Claus is coming to town!
This reward is perfect for your little elves during the holiday season! The idea comes from Brettny Mitchell, a para-professional at Horatio Elementary in Horatio Public Schools. A quick Santa visit during lunch was so memorable for the students at Horatio Elementary.
Your school can bring Santa and the North Pole to your K-2nd grade students during the holidays, to create some holiday cheer and encourage positive behaviors.
Get creative and bring the experience to life with a Christmas-decorated area, holiday dishes, and maybe even some snow (real snow, fake snow, shaved ice, whatever works for your environment).
A more personable that you can include could be to have students who are to attend the lunch, write a letter to Santa. Santa can greet students by name and even surprise them with knowing some of their wishes.
