Thanksgiving is such a beautiful and powerful holiday!

My students and I always celebrated together with all desks pushed together into a long table. We wove paper place mats, made fresh fruit salad, popped corn, and served each other while giving thanks. Table manners were occasionally added as a mini-lesson, but usually unnecessary. SO MUCH FUN!!!

If you want to add some Fall decorations to your home and/or classroom, make a LET US GIVE THANKS WREATH filled with colorful Autumn leaves and dried beans. Hang it with a colorful bow.

You can, also, copy the “Let Us Give Thanks” poem written by yours truly into the Harvest Wreath as part of the LET US GIVE THANKS MINI-POSTER. Then, place it on a dining room wall or insert it into a frame to hang and keep.

Help set the Thanksgiving table by neatly writing the names of people who will be sharing Thanksgiving dinner with you on the LET’S GIVE THANKS PLACEHOLDERS. Ask where to put them on the table. If you are going to someone else’s home, for the Feast, you can take them with you. Make sure to print extra ones for surprise guests, too. See if there are other ways you can help prepare the table and/or foods for the celebration.

  • front & back covers for booklet use
