This was something I used with reading "Thanks for Thanksgiving." Students write what they hear the boy and girl are thankful for in the story. They also write down what it means to be thankful. You could easily just use the leaf part and have them write down what they are thankful for! When I did this lesson, we started out with looking for what the characters were thankful for, then we wrote down what we were thankful for. We cut out the leaves and posted them on a classroom tree. Enjoy!
