Product Description
Autumn is a wonderful time to have students reflect on who/what they are thankful for. This assignment combines analytical skills with writing a personal narrative. Students are prompted to think about a specific person they are thankful for and why. This is not a simple "I am thankful for _________ because _________" assignment. This pushes students to think critically and to "show" rather than "tell" about a person they are thankful for. They are given a mentor text to color code and annotate. Then, they must use a planning guide (mini flip book that will fit in a composition notebook!) to plan their personal narrative. Students must also incorporate literary elements, theme support, and more into their narrative!
