Product Description

Do you have reluctant writers in your classroom? Don’t despair! This Write a Thanksgiving Story Writing Center will motivate even your most challenged writers. It provides CHOICE and includes the TOOLS and GRAPHIC ORGANIZERS necessary to plan and write great Thanksgiving themed narrative stories. I wrote this unit for primary students, but it can be used with students in grades 1-5.

Students can select the setting, problem/plot, and character cards for their story which allows each student to create their own unique Thanksgiving themed narrative. No more having each student respond to the exact same writing prompt!

THIS PRODUCT IS PART OF A GROWING BUNDLE! CHECK IT OUT TO SAVE $$$

Students often struggle with writing because they are told to just “start writing.” The graphic organizers included allow the students to think about their stories and plan before they actually begin writing. There is also a writing checklist so students can make sure they have all the necessary elements in their story before they submit the final product.

TIP: Do not put out all the cards at any one time in the center. Too much choice is overwhelming, especially for younger students. There are enough cards so you can put out a few each week. I would select 6-8 problem cards at any one time to put out.

THIS PRODUCT INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING ITEMS:

  • A poster about the elements of a Thanksgiving Adventure Story
  • Setting, Character, Problem, and Items Cards - includes some generic writing prompts
  • Charts for Transitions and Sensory Words
  • Graphic Organizers for Story Map, Story Summary, and Sensory Words
  • Checklist for your story
  • Thanksgiving theme papers to write stories on

NOT INCLUDED: The graphic and the letters on the bulletin board in the preview ARE NOT part of this product. There are instructions in the directions on how to print a large graphic for a bulletin board if you wish to make one.
