Thanksgiving Week

This week we only have school Monday and Tuesday.  I am definitely ready for the break!  Since we only have two days we won't be using our normal ELA curriculum, and that frees up a little time for some seasonal activities.

We are going to read my favorite Thanksgiving story A Turkey for Thanksgiving by Eve Bunting.  If you haven't read it before, it is a super cute book.  Mrs. Moose wants to have a turkey for Thanksgiving.  She sends Mr. Moose out to find a turkey, which he drags to their house.  The surprise ending is that Mrs. Moose wants turkey to be a guest, not dinner!

After we read we are going to make a flap-book to retell the story.

We are also going to read All About Turkeys by Jim Arnosky.  I love pairing fiction and nonfiction titles on the same topic.  After reading students are going to web four new facts they learned about turkeys.

I also created a fact family practice sheet to go with our theme this week.

You can click on any of the pictures to head over to my TPT store and pick up this free download.
