“What I Am Thankful For” By Ben Franklin 5th Grade Reading Group

Eleven fifth graders in Alice Smith’s reading group at Ben Franklin Elementary School approached this project with great enthusiasm, as they brainstormed, wrote, edited and revised their responses in a class writing project.  Here are copies of their thoughtful and heartfelt letters which were published in the Grand Forks Herald on Thanksgiving Day.

    Thanks again, Sue Lindhauf and Joe Boushee, for the opportunity to work with you on this project. You really helped our work in studying text features of the Herald come to life. You gave 5th grade students a chance to have their voices heard in such an authentic and positive way.

    Feeling thankful,
    Alice Smith
