Thank You Acrostics

Found In: crafts & cooking, language arts, puzzles, thanksgiving

Just prior to Thanksgiving, I do “Thank You Acrostics” in my classroom. I teach German so we use the word “danke,” but any language would work just fine. Students write the word “danke” down the left side of a regular piece of paper and think of things for which they are thankful that start with those letters.

To extend the activity I ask them to draw small pictures of the things they are listing next to the word. Students will sometimes need a reminder to think deeper than their Nintendo, but the results are usually very thoughtful. I then give them construction paper to glue it onto. The activity makes good refrigerator art for home.
