Quick Tip: Thanksgiving in Spanish Class

Updated **Originally posted on 11.20.14**

Here is a quick, fun and easy way to decorate for Thanksgiving in a any classroom. No, I do not teach elementary students, but yes, my students enjoyed tracing their hands. 
The start of our thankful turkey

1. Post "We give thanks for.." in your language of choice. 
2. Make a bare turkey. (I cut this peanut looking turkey from a cardboard box and just added construction paper eyes, mouth & gobbler).
3. Have students trace their hands. 
4. Students write something they are thankful for on each finger of the hand "feather."
For lower level students, we brainstormed on the board all of the things they are thankful for, and they learned some new words that applied to their life. 
5. Add the thankful hands on the board. Above is the start of our turkey, with many more classes to still add. 

You could also have students create their own turkey, or find a template to print, where they write what they are thankful for on each feather. 

As an extension students could do a free write on what they are thankful for, what they did last Thanksgiving, or what their plans are for this year. 

What are you thankful for this year?
