Promote class community and embrace the Thanksgiving tradition by having your students write why they are thankful for their classmates. The Thankful Project helps students share how they value their classmates and themselves. This special edition is to be used with the mini-books found in Target's Dollar Spot. They are usually sold in packs of 8 for $3, and can be found at different seasonal times throughout the year.
The Target Mini-Books have 16 pages. So, if you have more than 16 students, you can either use this product and staple the pages together to make a book, or check out The Thankful Project Full Size Book Edition.
This set contains four different types of writing pages to accommodate writers at different levels: words written in, tracing words, blank pages with dashes, and single lined blank pages.
Write the names of your students on slips of paper and pick a name. The name of the student that is picked is the one that the class writes about. Students will all write why they are thankful for that student and cut out their page. The student can work on their book cover while the others are writing.
Once all students have written why they are thankful for that student, you or the student can glue the pages in the mini-book. Continue with this process until a book is made for each student in the class. This activity is great for morning work, writing centers, or your writing block.
For an at-home option, parents can give each family member a page to write why they are thankful for the child. Once all pages are completed, the parent can compile all of the pages to make a book for their child.
