I'm using the book: Thanksgiving is for Giving Thanks by Margaret Sutherland & Sonja Lamut.
The story is not so much about the history of Thanksgiving, but rather what Thanksgiving means to all of us in regard to being thankful for our friends, family, etc. It goes through different "homes" and describes why each kid is thankful. It provides the perfect starting point for being reflective of what we all are thankful for and my little friends love coming up with all sorts of things they are thankful for each and every day!
This book can easily be used just to lead into a writing activity of I'm thankful for... but I actually usually also use it as a lesson on visualizing (which is why it is in a file folder above!).
To continue the thankful theme...thanks Amanda and Stacia for your awesome weekly linky- I'm ready to go find some other great books!
Have a great day!
