Teachers, during this busy holiday season, we’ve got you covered with NO PREP ELA activities that are overflowing with fall vibes! 🍂

We have a cornucopia of fall wrap-around curriculum resources that align perfectly with ReadTheory passages (including Thanksgiving-themed ones), creating learning experiences like never before. Your students will be grateful for the opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge through writing prompts, discussion starters, group work, and poetry. 🍂🦃

We’ve even added competition trackers and reward certificates that you can use to increase engagement. Need to update that bulletin board? Well, we’re providing everything you need to create an interactive experience for your students.

How can you access this Thanksgiving treat?

You can unlock the Fall Lesson Bundle by signing up for a ReadTheory Premium account. This type of account will allow you to assign specific passages to your students, including those themed for Thanksgiving.

What types of resources are included?

  • No-prep Printable Worksheets

Poetry, multicultural group work, persuasive paragraphs . . . we’ve gathered the most popular activities for you to give your students. All you have to do is print them out!

  •  Writing Prompts

Reading and writing go hand-in-hand, and we have created some prompts that align to our passages. These prompts give students an opportunity to describe Thanksgiving dinner using their five senses, imagine having an unexpected dinner guest, and more!

  • Passage Aligned Discussion & Debate Starters

Want to get your students talking? Use our discussion starters to find out how students really feel about fall-themed topics.  Would they rather cook or clean up the Thanksgiving dinner? What do they think is the perfect time for Thanksgiving dinner? Should football be played on Thanksgiving? Have the students defend their positions with solid reasons. Be prepared to moderate as students choose sides! You can even make it more interactive by having students stand on opposite sides of the room, depending on their opinion.

  • Certificates & Trackers 

Students love being acknowledged for their hard work. We’ve included an achievement certificate that you can award to  students at any time as well as progress trackers for students to fill in each time they make progress on ReadTheory.

  • Bulletin Board Cutouts for Knowledge Points Ceremony 

Our Rising Star bulletin board cutouts will make it easy for you to transform your classroom into a rewarding experience. Students will be proud to monitor their progress on the bulletin board (or your classroom door!) as they periodically move their stars up.
