It’s here! Thanksgiving Countdown
We’ve had Halloween, and most of us have had parent-teacher conferences. Now it is time to focus on activities to keep kids learning until Thanksgiving week. Here is a quick idea to help you make the most of the “squirmies” for the next few days.
Every year, I love making turkeys with my students! There are tons of turkey patterns on Pinterest. This is one I have used way before Pinterest came along. Students trace around the sole of their sneaker on brown construction paper, or use the pattern from the download below. Cut it out. On other colored paper, cut out feather shapes until you have 1-10 feathers. Glue the feathers in an arc on the paper, then place the turkey body on top. Draw wings, color them, add a beak, eyes, and feet. Then have students to put dots to represent a count of 1-10 until each feather has dots that represent a number. The number can be written on the back of each feather for self-checking.
After this craft is finished, have students to pair up with dry erase boards and markers…and their turkeys. Each student takes turns pointing to a feather for their partner to speed write the corresponding number matching the dots as quickly as possible (student 1 points to 5 dots, student 2 makes a numeral 5).
Here is the pattern! Remember, use the shape to cut out pieces on a different color of paper. https://drive.google.com/file/d/11TdgZqx1C2E6NTz5rD5S5cLA0ehBX3Bz/view?usp=sharing
That’s it! It has been a busy week! Tomorrow, I will post a freebie at the bottom of this post! Stay tuned!
