All Things Turkey!

2 more days this week.
4 days next week.
2 days the week after... and then IT'S HERE!

I don't know how it happens, but year after year I am always surprised by the holidays!

This year, I am tryinnggggg to be more prepared. We are starting our turkey talk early!

We just started reading our new Magic Tree House book, Thanksgiving on Thursday, and my kiddos love themselves some Jack & Annie. Then we jumped into my Who's Talking Turkey? Thanksgiving math centers this week and created our number of the day turkeys:

 
I kinda let my students roll with it by themselves when they were creating them because I wanted to see how they were doing anddd I must say we need some work on 10s frames, yikes! They had to draw their own, which was difficult for them, but all in all I think they came out pretty darn cute!

In the upcoming weeks we will be completing lots of turkey and Thanksgiving themed activities and I thought I would show you the goods:

First, Ashley, at {The School Supply Addict} has just come out with these fabulous Thanksgiving vocabulary cards that are SO cute. I think I will be using them as a center - I see loads of sorts and spelling/vocabulary games in our future :)

Next, Lori, at {Teaching With Love and Laughter}, has some fun language activities in her Thanksgiving pack. We will be doing som of these games next week! I am especially loving the parts of speech sort because we are just finishing up our nouns, verbs, and adjectives units right now!

This last one is not turkey themed, but it is so great I had to do it! Sandra, at {Sweet Times in First}, has just come out with these word family word wall books and activities and this is just perfect for my students to review before the holidays! There are so many fun activities for centers or homework and she even included the adorable word wall cards. 

I am nosy and I like knowing what everyone else is doing, so I figured some other nosy people out there might want to know what I'm up to as well!
Happy hump day!

  1. I love how you incorporated math into your turkeys. Do you mind if I try something similar with my second graders?
