Top 3 Thanksgiving Pins for Middle School Classrooms!

I am getting my thankful on to Pawsatively Teaching and Inspired Owl's Corner for this month's Pick 3!

My Top 3 pins are the top 3 things one could do with a middle school class to celebrate Thanksgiving.

A Wall of Thanks!  
This is an easy one to do with middle schoolers and it's a nice way to start the conversation of being thankful.  Then...

You might choose to read a book like "The Giving Tree" by Shel Silverstein.  

This book would be a great way to get at the heart of Thanksgiving.  Or for a more mature middle school class, you could try O.Henry's "Two Thanksgiving Day Gentlemen".    

Either way, then you'll be ready to do some writing.


I like this because it's writing that students can be more personal about.   You might begin this writing time with "I wish my teacher and other people knew that I am thankful for..."  I'll bet you'll get some powerful results.  

Check out some other great pins and then link up your own!


  1. The Giving Tree is one of my this idea!! Thanks for linking up! :)

  2. The thankful hand writing is a great way for students to express themselves. Pinning to use later.

  3. Love the wall of thanks! Great pins! Thanks for sharing. :)
