Here is a fun two to three week writing unit from the perspective of a turkey! I start this about two or three weeks before Thanksgiving. It is a great way to teach students persuasive writing, letter writing, writing with voice and word choice among others! Could also be done in a blog or other digital formats. I have a separate prompt for each new entry for example " It looks like none of your plans have worked and you are going to be eaten this Thanksgiving, write a friendly letter to your family saying good-bye to them" (I do end up making them write a happy ending on the last prompt : ). Included are pages with lines, prompts and a cover page. All you need to do it print, copy and bind!
