Are you looking for a Thanksgiving writing activity you can use as a center, fast finisher, writing lesson, or holiday activity for the month of November? Look no further than Thank-you-grams! This easy idea (and free printables) is a perfect fit for the days and weeks leading up to Thanksgiving!
Thank You Grams are simple thank you notes (written on special paper of course) students can write to other students, teachers, or staff. These work wonderfully if you need a writing center or holiday fast finisher that requires very little prep (just make copies and talk with students about being specific in their thanks!).
If you can get multiple teachers in your school to offer Thank-you-grams as a holiday activity option it exponentially multiplies the fun! Nothing makes a teacher’s day more than finding sweet thank you notes from past students in her mailbox at the end of a very long and dark (thanks for nothing Daylight Saving Time) day!
Head to my TpT store HERE to download 8 Thank You Gram templates (2 half page, 2 whole page, black & white, and color versions) + a 5 parts of a friendly letter check sheet if you want to turn this into a letter writing mini-lesson or independent center.
If you want even more Thank You Gram resources, make sure you sign up for the Super Teacher e-mail list!
Subscribers will receive an extra 4-per page Thank You Gram printable, student check sheets for all versions of the activity + a student-friendly direction page so you can turn Thank You Grams into an independent center right after a trip to the copier!

Happy Thanksgiving and enjoy your break. You’re almost there Super Teacher!!
