After speaking with my supervisor about her Thanksgiving lessons, I decided to doctor up my own version of her great idea! Invite Tom Turkey to be AT the Thanksgiving table and not ON the table! Have your kids learn the persuasive language (included in the download) that is involved with having someone get on your side! Tie these words into the election, into their writing, and even into their school elections going on now (in my school, at least!).
Your kids will write (or talk-out) a letter to their Thanksgiving host. Using persuasive language, they'll explain why Tom should come to dinner and how it would help make the night more fun! To further the lesson, you can hand out the "Persuasive Pilgrim Hats" to each kid to make sure they use their specific word!

To all those weathering out the storm, stay safe and be smart!
