Turkey Writing Brainstorm
Then we set to work on our first persuasive writings and tried to convince our readers to have something other than turkey on Thanksgiving. As a class, we brainstormed other things people could eat on thanksgiving other than Turkey. As students shared, I made a list on my teaching whiteboard.
This helped us focus our writings and build details.
