Dear Santa: Letters from Cheri Graf's class

-A A +A

Buckner Elementary teacher Cheri Graf said her wish for her kindergarten and first-grade students is that they'll all stay healthy!

Graf said her favorite holiday tradition is watching silly Christmas
movies while decorating the Christmas tree with her family. 

She thinks her students are probably included on Santa's nice list this year.

"My students have been extra nice this year!  They are such a compassionate, sweet group of kids," she said.

Dear Santa Claus,
How are your deer doing?  I hope they are not sick because we will not get
prasins and that will be bad.  We wish you a Merry Chrismas and a happy new
year.  You’re the beste prson ever.  I would like a feather for my hear
because it will make my hear colorful.  It is a feather that is a colorful
feather that you put in your hear.  You have to clip it on in to your hear.
Frst you just put it in your hear then clip it.  But one thang I forgot to
put up there is it is real and that I want it to be Chrismas colors.  It is
good to make my hear blond and Chrismasy colors.  I want it because I done my
jobs at home and I done my moms too.  I dusrvue it because I’ve been good.
I dursrvue it because I done the longry too.  I duzrve it because I clend my
room.  I clend my playroom.  I clend my dining room.  I clend the dishis.  I
clend the cloths.  I promis I will catch up with it.  I clend my brothrs
trash can.  I clend my moms trash can.  I did the bathroom trash cans.  I
hope you have a fun trip putting the prasins under the tree.  I love you
Santa Claus.

Dear Santa Claus,
How ws yur day?  I had a good day.  Is the deer good?  I love you Santa
I love Krismis.  I wod like a orbs jolre makrr (Orbie’s jewelry maker).  It
maks jolre.  My mom an I can mak jolre.  I love jolre.  I love jos (jewels)
so dos my mom.  Jos are so buotfol.  Jolre are so so buotfol.  I love jolrey.
 Jos are so so so grojis (georgous).  Me and my mom like to wer jolre.  You
do not ned to rap it.  Just put a bow on it.  Hape noo yir Santa Claus.  I am
gunna mak los of jorey.  I thek jolre are so prite.  I have bin wrk very hrd.

Dear Santa,
Is it cold up there?  I would think it’s freezing up there.  Do you have
your list going good?  I hope you do.  Are your reindeer getting ready for
the big long slay ride?  If I was you I would be getting them ready and
choosing the teem that you want this year.  Normally it is warm down here and
I was going to ask if you could get me penbo and friends because when it is
time to go to bed I will be able to sleep and cuddle up with it.  When I
cuddle up with it I can open the middle of his belly and there is a chick
inside of it’s belly.  I will be able to cuddle up with it because it is
fuzzy and fluffy.  I want it because my sister has more noisy alive stuffed
animals then me.  I only have about 1 of them and my sister has about 6 of
them.  I also want it because it is a good friend to everybody.  I should get
it because I have been working hard at school and doing my jobs at school.
If you give me penbo and friends I will share it with my sister for a week.
I hope you have a safe slay ride home.  Merry Christmas.

Dear Santa,
I wish I could be in the north pole with you.  How was your thanksgiving
feast?  I had a graet one.  I hope you have a graet Christmise.  I want a dog
for Christmise.  A real dog.  I want it because I want to tran it.  And I
will share it.  Win its trand I will want to play with the dog.  I want it
because it can be my best friend.  I want it to be a boy dog because I’v
allrdy had a girl dog.  You don’t have to rapp it.  A bows just fine.  We
can by a tennis ball and I could play with it.  Next year I’ll be beter
then thes year.
