  • StandardsNEW

Students distracted by their Thanksgiving feast and Black Friday? Kill two birds with one stone by letting them embrace the holiday season while simultaneously practicing their narrative writing skills!

Our series of narrative writing guides are designed to shepherd the writing process from “planning to polished” by letting students’ imagination jump-start their writing and not vice versa. Unique from most creative writing units, our Thanksgiving narrative guide begins by asking students to make simple and fun decisions about the key elements of their story before having to lift a pen or open a word processor!

A “10-second sub plan” (print and drop on your desk!) or the basis of a week-long writing unit, your purchase includes:

  • A narrative map template that assists students on selecting their Thanksgiving story’s setting, main character, conflict, and theme (almost no writing required!)
  • A background chart so students can develop their narrative and reflect on their favorite elements of Thanksgiving
  • A narrative outline activity, where students can take their map’s visual guidelines and begin drafting their narrative
  • A Thanksgiving narrative writing assignment sheet that includes descriptions of famous stories from the fall season, a due date calendar, general narrative writing tips, a Thanksgiving story writing peer edit checklist, and standards-based grading rubric (Standards: CCRA.W.3, CCRA.R.2, CCRA.L.1, and CCRA.L.2)
  • All 4-pages of this lesson are provided in B&W and full color (for lucky teachers with access to color printing!)
