This writing prompt, paper, directions, and cover will have your students ready for the Thanksgiving season. My students love a chance to be creative and break away from the norm in writing.

This year I wanted to give them an open ended way to engage in writing. This was created as a "Write and trade" prompt. One student starts and after 2-3 minutes it is passed to the next student and they can only read the last sentence! Keep going until you feel each story has developed.

The students get the story back and can finish adding details or an ending along with a cover page. Such a fun, engaging way to keep students in writing close to the holiday season!
