1-2-3 Come Do Some Turkey "Stuffing" Activities With Me
Looking for some easy-peasy, Thanksgiving-themed activities, you can do with your kiddos, that cover a variety of standards in a quick, easy & fun way?
Then I think you'll enjoy these print & go, "Stuff Me” Thanksgiving worksheets.
There are 14 “Stuff the Turkey!” worksheet options, plus a blank template for you to program with whatever.
Students “stuff” their turkey with either upper or lowercase letters, numbers, a variety of word choices (8), like words that begin with the letter Tt as in turkey, spelling words, adjectives that describe Thanksgiving, as well as blessings, or reasons to be thankful.
Set a timer for 1-3 minutes. Students write in as many _______'s as they can before the timer rings.
Choose a week’s worth of worksheets, so that students can also get in some data collection & addition practice too, by having them keep track of their totals on their “Stuff” recording sheet.
When you have done as many skill sheets as you want, have students add things up to arrive at a grand total.
My kiddos enjoy this activity so much, that they ask to do more.
I think they love being timed, which is great practice for later testing.
Children also feel empowered, because you’ve already explained things once, so they can get right down to business because they already know what to do.
You could also opt to simply do these without a timer.
They're great for early finishers or for homework too.
I’ve included a certificate of praise for the students with the highest totals, as well as a poster to jot down the winners’ names underneath.
Display completed work on a “Gobbling Up Knowledge” bulletin board.
I’ve included several posters to use as the center of your display. Hooray for all your smart little turkeys!

Today's featured FREEBIE is a sweet little turkey craftivity. It's a personal favorite that I've done with my students, as well as my grandchildren.
From the feathered hand prints, to the traced shoe (body), this is sure to become a special keepsake.
"I'm a little turkey as cute as can be. I'm very thankful for my wonderful family!"
Well that's it for today. It's Veterans Day, so my hubby has off. (A grateful "Thank You!" shout out to all of the courageous veterans out there!)
Not sure what we'll do, but it's nice having him home. I'll endeavor not to pull out my "Honey please do" list. Wishing you a love-filled day.
