Thankful Writing is a lesson plan with a set of digital and printable resources for teaching students to write a simple 5-paragraph essay about the things they are thankful for. You'll find directions for introducing this easy expository format, leading a brainstorming session, and working with students as they complete their Thanksgiving essays. The best part is that they can glue their essays into a folder, decorate them, and share them with their families on Thanksgiving Day!
