***Thanksgiving Wreath for your Classroom***
Thanksgiving is a wonderful time for your students to reflect on giving, kindness, family, compassion, and other important values and themes; moreover, this is an engaging activity for your students to reflect on these values in poetry. Acrostic poetry is a creative type of poetry where your students are instructed to use the letters of a word to start their poetic sentences. In this case, your students will be writing an Acrostic poem using the word, “thanks”. If the Acrostic poem is too difficult or too time-consuming for your students, I also included a short writing prompt, “I am thankful for…”. I wanted to add some variety to this activity, in case you needed to differentiate instruction.
To add to the engagement of this activity, the students will complete their final poem/writing prompt on a leaf, cut and color the leaf, and you can create a beautiful wreath using your students’ poems and/or writings. This is a perfect invitation when people enter your classroom-a gorgeous wreath made from your students’ work!
