Product Description

Get your students excited about writing with this fun Thanksgiving themed writing center! This is a great resource for encouraging creative writing and for reluctant writers who have trouble getting started.

Who is it for?

  • Kindergarteners (5 to 6-year-olds)
  • 1st Graders (6 to 7-year-olds)
  • 2nd Graders, (7 to 8-year-olds)
  • 3rd Graders (8 to 9-year-olds)
  • 4th Graders (9 to 10-year-olds)
  • Homeschoolers


What's included?

  • There are 52 cards included in this writing center: Setting (16), Character (20), and Problem (16). Some for both past and present Thanksgiving have been included. *Both color and line art cards are provided.


Depending on the reading ability of your students, you may choose to use only the character and setting cards for    Kinder or First grades, but this center works well using all cards for 2nd-4th.

Cards can be placed in a center, chosen and taken to student desks, or displayed in a pocket chart. Let students choose or for a greater challenge, have them draw one of each set without looking!

Four different fall bordered writing paper options have also been provided to accommodate the needs of your class. Two full-lined pages, one partially lined page with room for drawing a picture at the top; and one partially lined page that has a space at the top for writing or drawing each of the three story elements that were chosen for the story. (This last option is helpful if they are choosing cards from just looking at them in a pocket chart.)
