Do you have a little time before Thanksgiving break, but don't want to start a lengthy writing assignment? Would you like a fun way to introduce or review figurative language (personification) and writing step-by-step narratives? Then read this post about my Thanksgiving Personification Writing!
We start by reading some of our favorite mentor texts to help us collect good descriptive words about Thanksgiving/Fall foods.
Then I show them my example organizer that is already filled in.
I then provide them with a blank organizer of their own.
I work with small groups to fill this out and begin writing their paragraphs.
I give the "Wanted Poster" activity to early finishers.
It's a fun little writing activity that usually takes about a week.

What do you do with your writing block before Thanksgiving? I'd love to hear about it!
