Thanksgiving Prompt with Free Sensory Details Recording Sheet and Giveaway

A year ago, I had my students write a poem called My Unusual Thanksgiving.  We had a guest speaker who shared her poetry so I didn't create a printable for the lesson.

Here is the original prompt:

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 unique?

This year my students have five days off over Thanksgiving weekend.  I created this sheet to help them record a moment during their weekend.  I plan to have them bring the sheet back to school and do the rest of the writing process in class. 

Here is the link to the Google Doc of the Sensory Details Recording Sheet.

This year I expanded my Imagery 2.0 product to include more graphic organizers and lesson ideas.  This process helps my students show not tell in their writing. Parents at conference were impressed.

Here is the link to Imagery 2.0 in my Teachers Pay Teachers store.

  1. The worksheet is a great idea! The kids and family members that help them will really have to think about different things for the holiday! Thanks for sharing at Manic Monday!
