A Little More Thanksgiving

Whew! We had our Thanksgiving lunch today and I am wiped out! It's so much fun though and I hope to blog about it this weekend!
I had hopes of sharing some additional ideas for Thanksgiving last week, but my sweet girl turned 2 and I was a little preoccupied. She's 2 y'all - officially a big girl and not a baby :(.

At school, we've continued hitting our standards hard, but with a Thanksgiving flair! In math, we used corn to practice our one-to-one correspondence while adding 1 more and also to practice making 10 {love this activity from Kelley Dolling!!}.


We also worked on making 10 by doing a shake and spill activity with feathers. I copied feathers on yellow and red paper, glued them together, cut them, and put 10 in a cup. Then, we shook them, spilled them, and sorted them by color. The kids colored the turkey feathers to represent the feathers we spilled, then we made the equation to match.

We also made this little turkey from my November pack to practice ordering numbers {and can I just say praise Jesus...everyone did it right the first time!!}.


This week, we've been learning all about turkeys. This book is a great informational book that the kids loved!
http://www.amazon.com/All-About-Turkeys-Jim-Arnosky/dp/0590481479#
After reading, we made a turkey tree map {and made some cutie turkeys to hold them} and also labeled the parts of a turkey.




We also talked about what we tell people to eat if we were turkeys and made these little guys {sorry the writing is a little hard to see!}.

As a surprise, Mr. Golden {my friend Deeanna's husband} brought the feathers, beard, and feet/spurs from a turkey their son killed years ago. The kids loved getting to see it up close and personal!

Another skill we've continued to work on is sequencing. We read I Know An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Pie and A Turkey for Thanksgiving and sequenced both. The kids love these stories! {You can get them in my sequencing bundle or in the Thanksgiving sequence pack}.



Something else we do every year is have the kids work with their family to decide an Indian name. We use this name as part of our Thanksgiving lunch, but we also use it to make these little guys {I think my friend Deeanna made this one of her very first years of teaching - over 20 years ago}.


We've got 2 more days this week and then we get the whole week of Thanksgiving off {we haven't had a break since Labor Day!!}. I can't wait to bundle up in my PJs and watch some Hallmark movies!
