With 2020's schedule, this teacher mama is getting behind on her blogging! Thanksgiving was a crazy one this year! Would you agree?
We discussed turkeys a LOT leading up to Thanksgiving. We listed things that turkeys eat, where they live, what they lay and other facts about turkeys.
Some of our favorite read alouds about Thanksgiving include 'Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving by Dav Pilkey, Turkey Trouble by Wendi Silvano, There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Turkey by Lucille Colandro and How to Catch a Turkey by Adam Wallace. We love how silly these stories are, they make us giggle so much!
For writing, we write a simple sentence about either a turkey or a scarecrow. I like to let the kids choose how to end their sentence based on their interests. Some kids write more details but most stick to one sentence at this point in the year. Then, they add a detailed picture so we can display their wonderful work in the hallway!
Our favorite snack for the holidays is this Nutter Butter and Reese's Pieces snack. We set it up to look like a turkey and finish it off with Candy Corn! Yum.
This little Thanksgiving pack is my favorite, for all of the heartfelt mom reasons! Both items are the SWEETEST THANKSGIVING KEEPSAKES!
We love celebrating Thanksgiving before going on break! The kids are always super excited to share their holiday traditions with the class. Happy Thanksgiving!
