Good writers vary their sentence patterns by sometimes placing phrases or clauses at the beginning of their sentences. The twenty Thanksgiving-themed sentences in this exercise all begin with the subject and the verb.
Learning to rewrite the sentences without changing their meaning is good practice for students to achieve sentence variety. At the same time, they will be reminded of things that are associated with the Thanksgiving season. Enjoy!
This lesson may be used two ways:
1) Print the materials and distribute them to your students.
2) Instead of printing the pages and distributing them to students, you can give them a link to each page and they can view the digital slide in their Google Drive and record their answers on Google Slides. Students can submit their work to you however you wish.
(Google Classroom, email, etc.)
Using the Google Drive Resource
will save you hours of time and reams of paper.
The benefits of Google Drive Resources include:
• Share lessons and exercises one page at a time.
• Students can access the materials from anywhere they have access to their Google Drive.

• Go Paperless. No need to use a copy machine.
• No printing is required; however, if you wish to print, it will look great!
