This is a very versatile
activity, as it can be used generically for fall
, as well as Thanksgiving
Use it as a card
for younger children to make, or as a writing prompt
craftivity for older students.
Ive discovered that anytime I toss a bit of craftiness into a writing lesson, my students are excited
to get right down to business and more happily engaged
Completed projects make a sweet bulletin board
I’ve included a list of 21 writing prompt options
for them to choose from.
Besides the writing prompt choices, there are also several patterns for different “keepsake” cards
you can make.
Personally, I designed this activity for Thanksgiving; ( “Welcome to my home for Thanksgiving” ) however, I realize some children don’t celebrate this holiday, so I’ve also included a generic “Welcome To My Home”
pattern as well.
Choose which template is appropriate for your kiddos or give them a choice
Be sure and check the PREVIEW for my samples.
Templates come in black & white
for students, as well as full color
, so that you can quickly and easily make an example to share.
I purposely used the word “home” rather than “house” because home has a connotation of a place
where you live, which could be an apartment or igloo, while a house is specific.
I’ve also included extra patterns with a bit of blank space on the door and doorstep, so that children can practice writing their address
This activity is an educational
,” little something”, you can plug into that often hectic last day before Thanksgiving break.
for you; super-fun
for your students.
