Thanksgiving Paragraph

Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate our family, friends and what we are most thankful for.  Your assignment is to choose one of your favorite things to do on Thanksgiving and explain why it is your favorite.  Be sure to have a bare idea which should include what your favorite thing is, extensions (who, what, where, when, why or how) and an elaboration (specific example and lots of "action" words.)  End your paragraph with a feeling or a thought. 

I can't wait to read your responses!  Have fun!

  1. I like Thanksgiving because of all of the food. My favorite Thanksgiving food is the turkey. When I see it my mouth waters like Niagra Falls. When I take my first bite out of the golden brown leg, it tastes like a bite out of heaven. I sound like a pig when I stuff the leg down my throat. That was delicius!

My favorite part of thanksgiving is diging into the juicy turkey that my dad cookes.As I sit down at the table I smell the wonderful turkey and my tummy screms at me.When I bit into it and the juice squirts out my taste buds dance from exitment.When I am done I have juice all over my face. I enjoy thanksgiving and when we have the turkey!

  3. On Thanksgiving I love to eat my Moms cooking.
    Thanksgiving in my family is always a hastle but all the chaos is worth it.We all sit around our wooden dining room table forks,spoons,fine china plates,and crystal glasses with about 8 dishes just waiting to be devoured.My personal favorite is my moms candied potatoes.Sweet potatoes in a sweet sweet brown suger glaze sticking to the cassoraoll dish.They taste like sugary heaven.

  4. My favorite thing to do on Thanksgiving is get the whole family together at my house. When the whole crowd comes in the knife goes cutting. And people stand by watching the knife cut into the delicious mouth watering meat. Cut.... The yummy ham and turkey is put on the table and before you know it ,it is gone! Tons of people run up staring at my mom like they had never eaten before in their life. Their eyes are as big as a sinkhole and their mouth is the size as a apple when they don't get the food. The turkey is put out on the table and they tackle it like it is a million dollars. The ham is put out and it is all gone. That is my favorite thing to do on Thanksgiving.

  5. I love eating the tasty foods that my grandma and grandpa make for Thanksgiving.I can smell the great tasting turkey steaming in the oven.I say to myself "I can't wait to eat that turkey". I also like eating mashed potatoes. I imagine my grandpa mashing up the potatoes. They taste like potatoes grown from heaven. My favorite food at the feast table is carrots. I smell the carrots boiling in the pot. The smell flows through the air and makes the house smell so good. I think that Thanksgiving is a good day to celebrate because your family comes together for a big feast.

    I like to see my family on Thanksgiving because I like to spend time with my family. I like to spend time with my family because I like to play games with them,we play games like Candyland, UNO, UNO SPIN, etc. The games are fun,we play for hours. It's always loud like wild fireworks blistering in the jet black night sky. We go to a family members' houses on the fourth Thursday which is Thanksgiving. We go because it is a pilgrams traditon,we get there by riding in our car to which ever house we go to. I always feel happy that I have a family to share Thanksgiving with.

  7. Every year on Thanksgiving our family usually eats from the delicious wonders of Boston Market. We get boatloads of mashed potatoes, endless mac & cheese, a ton of stuffing, and a lifesize roasted turkey. We also have my cousins, aunts, and uncles come over. After we eat, we play Wii Play. I am thankful for all I have. I love Thanksgiving because I my family.
