*Great for mixed or leveled classes to give students individualized instruction.

In writing, I scaffold and model information to my students. Each class is different and each year is different; therefore, I can't do everything the same each time I teach the same subject. 

I assign the writing prompt the week of Thanksgiving. You can choose how many paragraphs the essay should be. 

I start the Thankful Notes in early to mid November. I assign one student for the class to write about. I usually choose a transition time such as morning work or after lunch/recess. For the student whose name is on the board, have them decorate/write on their cover page (I am valued or treasured). It gets them thinking about why they are special. Or if that does not work for your class, have them write their name then draw on the cover page. You have the choice of 2 cover pages. You may want to print off the prompts and write the current student’s name on the board as you work through the class. Each student takes home a booklet once all students have been written about. I take the time to fill one out as well. You will need a heavy duty stapler. The other option for the Thankful Notes would be to have students fill them out for their family.

Make sure the kiddos go home with the Thankful Essay and Thankful Notes before the break!

Happy Teaching!
