Turkey Time



We finished up our Thanksgiving activities this week and I have already started enjoying my Thanksgiving Break! My to do list is HUGE this week.. so I am looking forward to a lot of extra time!

Here is a look at a few things we did to celebrate Thanksgiving.


We did a directed turkey drawing activity.


We drew with our pencils first while I demonstrated and showed them how on the board.

After we finished drawing with our pencils- we used sharpies (and nobody did anything crazy!!) to outline our turkeys.


We used pencils colors to color our turkeys.


They turned out great!


I also used both of my Thanksgiving Packs for center activities.

We practiced spelling November by cutting the letters and gluing them in order.

We counted Thanksgiving pictures and recorded how many.


Did a little tally mark counting…


And even & odd sorting…


And we made more turkeys..



Gobble Gobble! Enjoy your Thanksgiving!
