Description

Thankful Writing is a lesson plan with a set of digital and printable resources for teaching students to write a simple 5-paragraph essay about the things they are thankful for. You'll find directions for introducing this easy expository format, leading a brainstorming session, and working with students as they complete their Thanksgiving essays. The best part is that they can glue their essays into a folder, decorate them, and share them with their families on Thanksgiving Day!

Favorite Places Expository Writing Activity

If your students enjoy Thankful Writing, they'll love Favorite Places, a similar writing activity in which students are asked to choose 3 of their favorite places to visit and explain why they love those places. This resource also includes an alternate writing lesson, "Places I Dream of Visiting," that involves researching and writing about 3 places students hope to visit in the future.
