"We Are Thankful for Our Janitor" is a Thanksgiving writing piece that allows your class to show appreciation for their janitor. Every member of the class writes things they appreciate about the janitor. Then you put them all together to make a class book they can give to the janitor to say thanks for all he or she does. Janitors have a tough job, and everybody loves a quick thanks for all their work. It would be a great project for Thanksgiving, and it meets the CCSS on top of it! There are various graphic organizers and types of writing paper to help you differentiate for the needs of your classroom. Let's show thanks this holiday season.
