Description

Need an engaging, fun, and educational Thanksgiving writing craftivity? This no prep, easy-to-use activity will be a huge time-saver for you during those busy days before Thanksgiving break. Not only will your students enjoy this activity, they will also practice their writing skills. You will have everything you need to reinforce opinion, narrative, and informative/explanatory writing with this resource! Use in a writing center, whole group, small group, or independent practice. Use this resource to teach writing the whole month of November!

This resource includes:

•6 Thanksgiving page toppers (Use toppers with or without bottoms.)

•5 bottoms that go with 5 toppers (Turkey topper does not have bottom.)

Graphic organizers for opinion, narrative, and informative/explanatory writing

•Opinion Transitions sheet

•19 styles of lined writing paper including a plain 2nd page for

students who need a 2nd page

•Task cards with writing prompts for all three modes:

with opinion transitions

-12 task cards with informative/explanatory writing prompts

•Mini cover for task cards to store neatly

NO PREP!! JUST PRINT & USE!

Have students respond to the writing prompts on the task cards by completing the graphic organizer for the correct mode. Then, have students write their rough draft on a piece of notebook paper. When they are ready to publish their writing, they write their final piece on the lined writing paper included in this resource. Next, have students color the topper and bottom (if you choose to use a bottom) and cut out. The page topper can be glued to the top of the writing paper making sure words are not covered up. Bottoms can be glued to the bottom behind the writing paper to make it look as if the character is standing behind the paper. Voila’, you have a super cute craftivity to display in the hall or in your classroom!
