Thanksgiving provides such a wonderful (and much-needed) opportunity to practice gratitude.
We often spend our days thinking about what we don’t have or what we’d like to have, and it’s nice to take the chance to really focus on what is already in our lives.
They will will do so much more than just write out fun stories.
This set includes 5 prompts and 5 matching coloring pages .
Although sometimes it can be hard for students to get the ball rolling when thinking of things to be thankful for…
My favorite way to encourage my students to think about this is through writing.Writing prompts are a great way to stretch the imagination and improve grammar skills while having fun. Make sure to also get the All About My Pet Reindeer Creative Writing Prompts Stephanie is a thirty-something, homeschooling mom of two, that married her best friend in 2003.She is the owner and founder of The Multi Taskin’ Mom, Homeschooling on Accident, and Homeschool Printables for Free.As well as writing, it includes a story with reading comprehension questions about a little boy’s Thanksgiving traditions and then a prompt for the students to write there own narrative.We read through the story individually or as a class and afterwords I get my students to write their own Thanksgiving tale.I suppose I could use a monthly reminder to put my energy into being grateful for the amazing things in my life…friends, family, home, and those of you who are reading this, too! If your family is like mine you are probably looking for ways to engage your children while not overwhelming yourself.I also get my students to make a “Thankful Turkey” where they have to write something they are Thankful for on each part of the Turkey which they they color in and stick together.This task is good to get them thinking about all the things they are most grateful for.It is important for us as teachers to teach our students how to be kind and grateful people, this time of the year is an excellent time to enforce these traits in our students and show them that they can be thankful for even the littlest things in life and that it feels good to be kind to others and give back to our communities.There are so many activities and resources available to use to help teach our students how to express what they are thankful for.
