Free- Thankful Writing: An Expository Writing Lesson

November is finally here, and what better time to think of all of the things we are thankful for? "Things I'm Thankful For" may seem trite and overdone as a writing topic, but we can never overdo the message of learning to show appreciation for the people and things that make our lives rich and fulfilling. Fortunately, this topic also makes a great first expository essay for upper elementary students because it's so easy to organize and write. You can download it here from Teachers Pay Teachers and read more about how to use it from this Corkboard Connections blog post.
