No Turkey for Thanksgiving Persuasive Writing

Ready to get your students excited about writing this Thanksgiving season? This turkey persuasive writing is the perfect place to start! Designed to be a responding-to-text activity for the book, 'Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving by Dav Pilkey, this writing project inspires students to write a persuasive essay to their families on having something other than turkey for Thanksgiving! Although this activity is inspired by the book, it is not needed to complete this fun writing project!
