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

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.
