This lesson contains three writing activities that focus on gratitude, thankfulness changing negative feelings into positive ones.
After your students hear how the Berenstain Bears gain a new appreciation of the true spirit of Thanksgiving and all they have to be thankful for.
The first handout gives students the chance to make a Gratitude List either at school or with their families at home.
The second activity has them work in small groups using the blank cards provided to brainstorm vocabulary they can use to write stories about being thankful. Two styles of cute pumpkin bordered writing paper are included.
This lesson also includes a Be Thankful poem to read and a writing worksheet for students to list how they can turn negatives into positives!
Please take a moment to leave your feedback. I really appreciate hearing what you think. Thank you!
