Thanksgiving is just around the corner! One of my all time favorite desserts this time of year is pumpkin pie, so it only seemed fitting that I bring it into the classroom, somehow. This mini writing unit includes a quick and easy craftivity and 3 different CCSS writing prompts, which allows you to have a bit of standards based fun.
The variety offered within the pack allows you to focus on any of the writing genres within CCSS to support your current writing focus within your classroom. Or, you can simply pick the prompt you like best. See below for a complete list of what is included in this download.
