These activities are a creative alternative to the ever popular “Thankful For…” writing prompt.
The THANKFUL word, is a quick, easy & fun little craftivity your students can do in 5-10 minutes.
Children fill in the letters with things that they are thankful for. Drawings, stickers, or even a little photograph adds pizzazz.
I used all caps so that students had more room. Take a teachable moment to discuss why they think that most signage that they read is a “rule breaker” and uses all capital letters.
The packet also includes a class-made booklet, which includes several page options and covers.
Be sure & check the PREVIEW for samples.
It’s formatted on a full-page for a large booklet, as well as 2-on-a-page templates to conserve paper.
The booklet is a wonderful way to build students’ self-confidence, and is especially appropriate if your class participates in the “Bucket Filling” program, as children choose a partner then write why they are thankful for them.
Encourage older students to use at least 3 adjectives to describe their classmate, as well as 2-3 verbs of what they do that you are thankful for.
After they share their page, collect, collate and add a cover.
Remember to set your booklets out for parent-teacher conferences.
