This is a writing lesson that goes along with "Thanksgiving at the Tappletons'". When you purchase this you will be getting a set of graphic organizers that will guide your students to recreate the story of the Tappletons' using their own family members. Each organizer gives the students a tip regarding good writing habits and gives them something to focus on in that paragraph. Students are also given the topic for each paragraph and a type of figurative language, descriptive words, or transitional words to include in each paragraph. A narrative checklist is included. This will allow the students to self-check and peer edit. After students have completed their editing you are provided with seasonal holiday writing paper for students to write their final copies. You will also receive an additional seasonal sheet where students are asked to illustrate a scene from their stories and provide a caption to describe it.
This is a great writing activity that my students always enjoy. It is a great way to hit the common core writing standards while having a little fun during the holiday season!
