Are you looking for a meaningful Thanksgiving activity that goes beyond the typical "Things I Am Thankful For" writing assignment?
This project is perfect for upper elementary or middle school students (or even older!) and uses a touching short story from "Chicken Soup for the Teacher's Soul" (you'll need a copy of this book) to illustrate the power of words and create a simple but beautiful keepsake that will be cherished by your students for years to come!
One of my favorite projects of the year! Hope it will become a tradition in your own classroom.
Be sure to download the preview to get a glimpse of a few of the pages in this packet (small pictures of some of the pages also appear on the cover). Here's what's included:
A letter to the teacher
"Materials Needed" list (Chicken Soup for the Teachers Soul, paper, ink pens, copies of printable materials, a timer)
Preparation and Procedures (for teachers)
"How This Works" handout for students
"The Rules" handout for students
"How It Really Makes Me Feel" printable for student responses
"I Am Thankful for ___________ Because" printable for student activity
