Create Thanksgiving Poetry

Now let your kids try their hand at their own fun Thanksgiving poem. Using a scrap sheet of paper have them come up with a list of words related to Thanksgiving or things they are thankful for that start with each of the 6 letters.

After they have a list of words for each letter they can use another sheet of paper to form fun rhymes with each of their letters.

Then right click and “save as” this THANKS template. Print it out for your kids to create their own Thanksgiving Poetry on!
