1-2-3 Come Do Some Thanksgiving Writing Prompts With Me
The activities in the "Thanksful Packet", are a creative alternative to the ever popular “Thankful For…” writing prompt.
The THANKFUL word, is a quick, easy & fun little craftivity your students can do in 5-10 minutes.
Children fill in the letters with things that they are thankful for. Drawings, stickers, or even a little photograph adds pizzazz.
I used all caps so that students had more room. Take a teachable moment to discuss why they think that most signage that they read is a “rule breaker” and uses all capital letters.
The packet also includes a class-made booklet, which includes several page options and covers.
It’s formatted on a full-page for a large booklet, as well as 2-on-a-page templates to conserve paper.
The booklet is a wonderful way to build students’ self-confidence, and is especially appropriate if your class participates in the “Bucket Filling” program, as children choose a partner then write why they are thankful for them.
Encourage older students to use at least 3 adjectives to describe their classmate, as well as 2-3 verbs of what they do that you are thankful for.
Add school pictures for that finishing touch.
After they share their page, collect, collate and add a cover.
Remember to set your booklets out for parent-teacher conferences.
As always, I've included my completed samples, so that you can quickly and easily make an example to share with your kiddos, to help explain what you want them to do.
There's also a sweet little note from your teacher: I'm thankful you're in our class, that you can tuck in students' desks, folders, or backpacks.

While you're there, I'd so appreciate it if you'd follow me. I know it's a bit silly, but I really get excited about this growing number.
I only need two more followers to hit the 800 milestone. When I do, I'll be sharing a special FREEBIE in celebration.
By following, you'll know when I post FREEBIES or throw a sale. Thanks in advance for you consideration.
The featured FREEBIE for today is Patrick, the paper chain scarecrow. Use him as a creative and fun way to practice, counting and patterning via the links.
Older students can write why they are thankful on eack link, the scarecrow being a nice alternative to a turkey. Completed projects look cute dangling from the ceiling or as a border up against a hallway wall.
Well that's it for now. Thanks for stopping by. It's rainy, cold and dreary out.
The perfect kind of day to start creating some Christmas craftivities. Wishing you a warm-fuzzy, snuggly kind of day.
