My Unusual Thanksgiving List Poem

Write a list poem called My Unusual Thanksgiving.  Try to include images and events that are not typical of a Thanksgiving dinner on TV.  What makes the way you and your family celebrate Thanksgiving unique?

This writing prompt was inspired by a parent who shared her poetry with our class.  Her Thanksgiving includes Hawaiian and East Indian traditions.

Thanksgiving in my family means getting an advent calendar from my grandmother.

What are your unique traditions?

If you need more directions to write a list poem, I have a free download at my Teachers pay Teachers store. 

Update:  I added on to this idea here.  My poem about My Unique Thanksgiving is on Poems of Silliness.
