Kindergarten Thanksgiving Activities are HERE!
Thanksgiving week is historically a short school week. (Raise your hand if you are grateful).   We will have a week in pictorial review vs my typical Peek at my Week.
We have always enjoyed these turkey glyphs.

I love the book Turkey Trouble by Wendi Silvano and my class does too!
 Here are some activities to do with this fun book!
These pictures were sent to me by a teacher in Arizona who uses our Guiding Readers units.  Can I just say that the activity looks good… but her HAIR!  How cute it that braid?
These students are retelling the story!

Students sure enjoy the retelling processes.  It is such a great opportunity to practice this skill again and again.

I think turkey is going to be a sheep.

 

 Here are the student versions of retelling the story.  Students can add them to their notebook/journal or simply glue them to a piece of colored paper.

 

 Students also activated their schema and they built this graphic organizer.

 

 Then students responded individually.
 I hope you have a happy and blessed Thanksgiving week!

    I read Turkey Trouble to my Kinders every year. These activities are wonderful. Can I get all of these activities together somewhere? Please let me know where I can find these resources/activities.
    Thank you for sharing your great ideas!
