Teaching about el Día de Acción de Gracias

Teaching about el Día de Acción de Gracias can be very exciting but challenging if your students or yourself didn’t grow up celebrating this holiday. My first time celebrating El Día de Acción de Gracias was as an adult and I didn’t know too much about the history related to Thanksgiving. Quickly I learned to love this holiday. For me, El Día de Acción de Gracias is all about sharing a special meal and evening with family, friends, even people that we don’t know, and reflecting about the beautiful things we all have in our lives. Whether you grew up celebrating it or you are just learning more about this holiday, make sure that you say “Gracias” todos los dias.

EN CASA you can practice with your children to give “Gracias” and to think about their gratitude each day. This activity will give you a glimpse into the hearts of your family members while also giving you the opportunity to share your sentiments with them. Learn more about our Gracias challenge…

EN LA ESCUELA I try to incorporate reading, writing and math while learning about this holiday. I have created a Día de Accion de Gracias” Thanksgiving Activity Bundle you might enjoy. It contains 30-pages of math, letter and other cognitive printables. Crafts and Resources too! If you are a Monarca member download for free the bundle or you can always get it at my TpT store.

There are many words to learn, but not worry, once you know them you can use them during dinner with your family or while you’re having lunch with your students. Always consider the age group of your students or children when introducing new vocabulary. I like to introduce no more than 8 new words per lesson.
