As a class we brainstormed things we are thankful for. We then made an ABC Thankful book out of them. Each student was responsible for a page in the book.

We watched a brainpop jr about Thanksgiving and then I read a story about the first Thanksgiving.

During reading small groups that students imagined if they were a Pilgrim making the voyage from England to America on the Mayflower. They chose 4 things they would want to take with them.

We did a thankful writing which included steps from the writing process. We brainstormed ideas, organized them on our graphic organizer, edited the organizer, and then wrote our final draft. The students did a wonderful job on all the parts.
