Giving Thanks


Read to the class Thanksgiving Is for Giving Thanks by Margaret Sutherland. Then lead a class discussion; ask each student to name one thing for which he or she is thankful. Record on chart paper each student's sentence as follows:

I am thankful for __________.
(Add student's name at the end of his/her sentence.)
When sentences are complete, invite each child to read aloud his or hers. Finally, encourage each student to copy his or her sentence onto a sheet of drawing paper and illustrate it.
