Included in this product, The First Thanksgiving, you'll receive the following:
~a 10 half-paged Easy Reader. This is an original story about how Thanksgiving came to be. It is very basic, easy enough for kiddos to understand the big meaning about why we celebrate Thanksgiving. It begins with a little girl Narrator at Thanksgiving Dinner, asking the students if they know the meaning behind Thanksgiving. It ends with the same little girl and table, bringing the students full circle. Native Americans and Pilgrims are discussed; there's a page at the end for the students to draw a Thanksgiving picture. The most difficult page is the one shown in the preview. First Graders could read with assistance; Second Grade would be more fluent.
~4 Writing Prompts with papers to write response. These come in two writing line types, bigger spaced and smaller for the upper grades. I've included a full-paged smaller lined sheet for your students wanting to write more. There is also room for an illustration on each prompt page.
After reading this book and writing to the prompts, they will have a good grasp of the holiday and why we celebrate! This would also be an excellent reader to send home for families to read with their child over Thanksgiving Break. Or students could read it on Thanksgiving to their families and have a family member sign it as being read...Just thoughts!
