Looking for Thanksgiving activities? Look no further!

Thanksgiving is just around the corner!  Have you thought of ways you're going to celebrate this holiday in your classroom?  In my classroom, we always focus everything we do on giving thanks and being grateful for everything we have.  It also means a lot of conversations and discussions on what we have to be thankful for! 

I created this product for Thanksgiving that I'd love to share with you.  It's an original poem (written by me!) that students analyze by using the close reading method.  They have a printable poster that they record their answers on and can then decorate afterwards.  It makes a great bulletin board idea! Afterwards, students go through different steps to create their own thanksgiving poem about what they are thankful for. 

This is perfect for a whole-class activity, or you can add it to your literacy centers for the week.  To get your copy today, click here!  I've discounted it by 50% until Monday!
