All I ever have to do to get my kiddos highly motivated and excited to write
, is put a little bit of craftiness into the project.
With that in mind, I designed these "Thankful Wheels",
which do just the trick in getting them happily, right down to business.
As a pre-writing activity, students make a list of 6 things
that they are thankful for.
When they are content with their final draft
, they write this on the Pilgrim-topped paper
, then assemble
their wheel and illustrate
There are 4 designs
to choose from: A Pilgrim
boy or girl, or a Native American
boy or girl.
Younger kiddos do the simpler 3-piece wheel
For more writing practice, have students label their pictures
For your convenience, I've included my completed, full-color samples
, so that you can quickly make an example
to share with your students, to help explain
what you want them to do.
I also have a cute "I'm Thankful TURKEY Wheel" craftivity.
Give your students a choice of all 5 and buy the BUNDLE,
I'm Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy writing with a wheel, as much as mine do!
