This past week we focused more on turkeys and what we were thankful for. In our basal, we read A Turkey for Thanksgiving. It is such a cute story!! We read several other books about turkeys and Thanksgiving, including my FAVE, 'Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving! Soooo stinkin' cute!
If you haven't read these with your kiddos, do it! :) We did a quick writing prompt, "If I was a turkey on Thanksgiving..." They had some clever responses!
Well, I wanted to share just a few activities we did this week...
I always have my kids make Thankful Turkeys. They have to write about five things they are thankful for and why they are thankful for those things. They came up with the sweetest ideas!
Then we worked on sequencing in our writing. As a class, we wrote "How to Bake a Pumpkin Pie." After we did that, they had to write "How to Cook a Turkey." They came up with some funny directions!
It's always funny to see what temperature they think a turkey should be cooked at :)
Tomorrow and Tuesday we are going to focus solely on the Pilgrims and Wampanoags, and we will do this cute activity I found on Pinterest! We will also have our FEAST!
Hope everyone has a fabulous Thanksgiving! Enjoy time with your family, and eat a lot :)
