Thanksgiving Poems – they are educational, funny, historical, serious, catchy and so much more!
The lines rhyme, they have a cool beat, they create a festive atmosphere in the classroom or home and they make kids excited about the upcoming holiday.
In high school we memorized TONS of poems! At the time, I thought it was a little bit much, but poetry taught us so much. Through poems we learned about magical worlds, the sorrow of death, the pain of suffering, the bravery of the hero, the tale of the princess and lots of other captivating stories.
Thanksgiving poems are just like the other poems written for different times of the year. And to echo what I said above, Thanksgiving poems have so much to offer to everyone, especially children.
