Announce Your Historical Letters from the New World with Printable Door Signs
Sign up to receive historical fiction letters from a Pilgrim girl and a Native American boy by email. Each time you receive a new email, hang these free printable signs on your classroom door to announce that your class has received a letter.
Door Sign 1:
Email from a Plimoth Pilgrim
Door Sign 2:
Email from a Wampanoag Indian
Here are some ideas to make the Thanksgiving emails an event in your classroom:
- Use the letters in conjunction with Scholastic’s The First Thanksgiving Unit, complete with teaching guides and interactive student pages.
- Encourage students to write responses to each emailed letter.
- Print out copies of the emails. Enlarge them on a copy machine, and display them on your Thanksgiving bulletin board.
- Have a special student stand up and read an email to the class. This might be a student reward or a way to build confidence in reading aloud.
- Have a Readers Theater performance where one student plays the role of the Pilgrim and one student plays the Native American.
- Print copies of the letters and let your students deliver them to other classrooms.
