Thanksgiving is a time for creating family traditions, and an American secular holiday that most families take pretty seriously. It might be the first time that your kids are asked to think and communicate their feelings in front of their family. For some kids this is easy, but for others, it is hard to come up with the words to express their appreciation. As you can see from the poem template, it provides your child with the verb. He can do so however he chooses, whether it be with one word or a complete sentence. The template also allows for your child to choose whether he wants his poetry to rhyme, if he wants to write free-verse poetry or if he wants to tell an entire story. Here are some examples of how the poem could turn out.
