  1. Miss Duncans Donuts

    I absolutely loved this! I couldn’t decide whether it would be too difficult for my 1st graders or not. We did not do everything in one day. I had them do each piece for morning work and I glued everything together for them. We did the acrostic poem together as a class and they LOVED it! Thank you so much for an awesome Thanksgiving activity!

  2. Erin H.

    This is such a great activity! Please note it’s not meant to be done in one sitting! Take your time and your kids will enjoy it. 🙂

  11. Cristina M.

    My students really enjoyed creating these books. The finished product was really nice. I just recommend that you give yourself a lot of time to complete them because it is definitely not a quick activity! Definitely worth it though. A nice keepsake and opportunity for different kinds of writing.

  12. Heather S.

    This was a fun writing activity for my students in all grade levels to enjoy. It was easy to modify for my students who can’t do as much writing and found other ways to fill up the page.

  13. Allyson B.

    This is a great activity to do with first graders. It does take a lot of prep ahead of time. I wasn’t sure how quickly my students would be able to cut and arrange. They did great with putting it together step by step and they loved filling out all of the components.

    I love, love, love this activity. My students loved putting all the pieces in place and seeing the result. I did one first to show them what it would look like and they couldn’t wait to make theirs. They turned out great.

  50. Bethany H.

    My students absolutely loved this! They enjoyed every part of the lapbook and was so simple for them to work on independently at their desks or work with a partner. I even loved how some of the parts were their own mini book and you had to create them, I felt like it really made the kids think about what they are truly grateful for in their lives, especially during this time of year.

    The kids loved working on this project each day before the Thanksgiving break. It was just the right challenge level for my second graders.

    I needed something that was low prep and required little thinking from this tired teacher, and this fit the bill. It turned out really cute, and even my 3rd/4th grade parents appreciated it.

    This project was perfect for those few days of school before Thanksgiving Break! It took us a couple days to do all the parts and the end result was really cool!

They turned out really cute and my students were excited to take something home to share with their families for Thanksgiving.
