Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving, by Dav Pilkey, is one of my favorite books to read during the weeks before Thanksgiving. Pilkey’s book is a wonderful adaptation of the holiday classic, The Night Before Christmas, by Clement Moore.

We have created an awesome POWERPOINT Book Companion covering so many different aspects of poetry for you to use this Thanksgiving season. If this wasn't enough, our exciting Thanksgiving PowerPoint Show also includes animated turkeys to keep the students entertained throughout the lesson as you click each page.

We also included in the package a printout of the Thanksgiving PowerPoint to serve as anchor charts to display in your classroom during the day or week of the reading of the book, “Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving,” by Dav Pilkey. These displays will help reinforce the elements of narrative poetry.

Last, the package contains two writing prompts with accompanying worksheets for your students to enjoy for a creative writing endeavor.

What's Included:

  • Explanations of
    • Genre of Narrative Poetry
    • Lines, Stanzas, and Form
    • Rhyme, Rhythm, and Meter
    • Elements of Figurative Language, which include
    • Similes, Metaphors, Onomatopoeias, and Alliterations

  • Anchor Charts of PowerPoint to use during the reading of the book

  • 2 Writing Prompts with Accompanying Worksheets
