1-2-3- Come Make A Thanksgiving Wreath With Me
Here's a little fall-themed, leaf craftivity, with a variety of writing prompt options.
For more room, have them complete the writing prompt in the center circle.
I've included a pattern for that, which you can run off on fall-colored paper.
I've also included Ralph Waldo Emerson's "Thanksgiving" poem, as another option for the center, so you can fit the poetry genre into your reading block.
"Fall is . . ." is another writing prompt option. Students can write various adjectives that describe fall on the leaves, and/or write what fall is to them, inside the circle.
Younger students can simply cut and glue leaves to make an autumn welcome wreath. I've included a "Welcome Fall" center circle as well.
There are also plain and patterned leaves to choose from, as well as a bow option.
I’ve included my completed samples to help you make a choice.
Adding a school photo as well as some glitter, adds extra pizzazz and that finishing touch. Completed projects make a lovely November, or fall bulletin board too.
For more writing practice, I've included two, leafy, bookmark-size writing prompts as well, plus my 2 completed samples, so you can quickly make an example to share.
Besides the Ralph Waldo Emerson Poem, I’ve also included a page of his interesting quotes.
Give older students an additional writing assignment; have them choose a quote and explain it, then tell if they agree or disagree.

Today's featured FREEBIE is some sweet turkey-themed one-to-one correspondence cards.
I've included a full color set, a blank set to program with higher numbers, as well as a black & white set, so that students can draw, glue items, or press on X amount of stickers, as a worksheet activity.
I use a tub of buttons and a dish of flat-backed rhinestones. My little girls especially enjoy playing with the "jewels".
Well that's it for today. Time to get ready for my grandchildren. They will certainly bring sunshine to this rainy, cold & dreary November day.
Wishing you a day filled with lots of love and memorable moments.
"Do not go where the path may lead, go instead, where there is no path, and leave a trail." -Ralph Waldo Emerson
