We read the book Thanksgiving is for Giving Thanks by Margaret Sutherland.  Then we brainstormed things that we were thankful for and wrote about it on a big turkey paper.  Then students partner read the emergent book A Funny Bird and students circled the sight words that they’ve learned, then colored the pictures.

As we finished up our Thanksgiving activities last week, we read some more books about the first Thanksgiving and learned more about Native Americans and Pilgrims.  For math we’ve been learning about 2D and 3D shapes, and how to make bigger shapes from smaller shapes.  We made Native Americans designs from pattern block shapes.

During poetry time, we read the poem Five Little Turkeys using retelling cards and turkey pictures.  Then students filled in missing words using number word sight word knowledge.  The Five Little Turkeys book and cards came from Kindergarten Fever’s TpT.
