Check Out the Thanksgiving-themed Writing Lesson on WordWriter

Last month BoomWriter published a Halloween writing lesson that you could have conducted through their free WordWriter service. This month BoomWriter is offering a similar lesson plan with a Thanksgiving theme. The lesson plan that is appropriate for students in grades three through eight.

WordWriter allows you to create vocabulary lists that you want your students to incorporate into a writing assignment. The new Thanksgiving-themed lesson plan includes a pre-made list of Thanksgiving-themed words for your students to use in the writing assignment that you distribute to them. Each step of the process is outline in the lesson plan. The lesson plan document also includes the Common Core standards addressed in the writing activity.
