Description

Thanksgiving Write a Story begins by having students orally construct stories. While in reading centers, students will work towards composing a written story with a strong beginning, middle, and an ending. Students will write using appropriate describing details.

Your kiddos will be inspired to write with the colorful, fun THANKSGIVING clip art pictures they will use to create their stories. Some of the clip art includes: turkeys, pilgrims, Native Americans, Thanksgiving dishes, pumpkins, family traditions, etc. You can use the writing activities as mini-lessons and / or writing centers.

Idea development is very complex skill and continues to be an area of concern with students in grades Kindergarten all the way up to 12th grade. These activities are also appropriate to use with older students that are struggling with idea development in writing. The lessons are good for RTI / Intervention lessons.

The Thanksgiving writing centers cover the following areas:

  • Idea development
  • Coming up with details to address a specific prompt
  • Breaking down writing into smaller steps
  • Selecting the best details to use in writing
  • Brainstorming unique ideas to write aboutUsing personal connections in our writing

This kit can also be used as an RTI Writing Intervention.
