I wish I could be with my grandfather when he receives all of the letters that I had my Drama Club students write to him. In the past two years he's lost a daughter and a wife, so he's a bit lonely right about now. Hoping these might cheer him up. :-)
I had them write a letter on the inside with a little bit about themselves. Of course they all felt the need to tell him what they thought of his grandson... some of the most memorable quotes being:
"I like Mr. Fitz his legs are long."
"My friends like Mr. Fitz."
"Mr. Fitz is very handsome and he has a husky voice."
-or when talking about themselves-
"I like to eat pizza and chicken so I am a little fat."
"I have one brothers and one kangaroo."
"This is my address (insert address here) PLEASE SEND ME GIFT."
I'm super thankful to have students that were willing to humor me and help me put a smile on good ol' Papa's face. Yay Christmas.
