Product Description
Integrate understanding main idea and details into your writing lesson!

Students review this skill by sorting the details (feathers) to the correct main idea (turkey). Blank feathers also included for students to add more details to the given main ideas!

Model and teach your writers to FOCUS on ONE main idea (topic) to write about. After students choose one thing they are thankful for, they list the reasons (details) on the feathers. This activity has been essential in helping my students stay on topic when describing what they are thankful for!

Students apply and write (5 different writing pages included) a paragraph on topic to describe and explain what they are thankful for. These writings can be easily compiled into a book! I have given several options for covers for their Thankful Books. Thankful Books make for a meaningful, daily writing time for the month of November.

All included {SEE PREVIEW}:

*6 Main Idea Turkeys in color AND black and white
(I am thankful for water, I am thankful for my dog, I am thankful for my school, I am thankful for my family, I am thankful for books, I am thankful for my home)
*24 (detail) feathers for students to sort by main idea
*blank turkeys and feathers to make your own!
*Brainstorming page and example for students to write their main idea on the turkey and details on the feathers
*Thankful Book Printable Cover
*Thankful Book Titles, Turkeys, Feathers separately for alternative cover craft!
*5 different versions of writing pages to choose from for Thankful Book
*plus BONUS main idea/detail activity > see in preview!

It's a perfect time of the year to have students focus on expanding on one topic. Now is the time for your kiddos to master writing with the main idea in mind
