First and foremost, I would like to thank a fellow third grade teacher, Dana Mullally for this writing inspiration. She gave me permission to take her idea and create this writing resource packet for all of you. :-)
If you are looking for a creative writing activity to do with your class for Thanksgiving, this is it! Your students will LOVE this project because it will be allow them to showcase their creativity and use their imagination! This activity is a great follow-up activity to the book, Balloons over Broadway by Melissa Sweet which is a true story about the creator of the Macy's Day Parade. You can listen to this wonderful story via You Tube.
In this resource, you will receive the following:
*Suggested Lesson Plan
*Several Brainstorming/Planning Sheets for Prewriting:
-Sensory Details Sheet
-Narrative Writing Planning Charts (3 versions)
*Publishing Sheets (3 versions)
*Optional Art Activity
I really hope you and your students love this activity for Thanksgiving.
