I decided to make the pre-writing a little Thanksgiving-ish for this. (The writing had nothing to do with Thanksgiving :-/) Once they were finished with the pre-writing they could put it into their hamburger graphic organizer. I use this hamburger writing ALL THE TIME!! I just find that it works perfectly for my students! I got this from superteacherworksheets.com. (I love this site...it's so worth the subscription!)
Since that really wasn't very Thanksgiving-ish I had students write what their favorite food at Thanksgiving and what they are thankful for. The key was that it had to be a COMPLETE sentence!
On Thanksgiving I started my day out with a little 5k! It was a turkey trot fundraiser for Hospice! It was a little snowy and REALLY cold, but totally worth it!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Hopefully you all were stuffed with turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and yummy pies!
