1-2-3 Come Do Some Thanksgiving Math Activities With Me
Strut your math skills with this cute turkey craftivity.
You can review all sorts of standards while playing this game, which is easy to differentiate for a variety of ages and learning levels.
Use the 10-sectioned pie pattern, to simply make a 10-piece puzzle, for younger students to practice counting and sequencing numbers 1-10. You can also review colors with them as well.
Older students can practice numbers and their number words.
It only took 15 minutes to make a class set. Store them separately in Ziploc Snack Baggies.
Reinforce life skills, by playing with the puzzles as a partner game.
You can use dice and practice addition, or use the spinner (3 are included) to play that way.
If your kiddos are also studying fractions, they can play Memory Match or "I Have; Who Has?" games, with the turkey's pumpkin pie fraction cards.
I've made a larger set to use as flashcards, as well as included a set of black and white pocket chart cards.
These can also be used as a worksheet for your kiddos to trace, write,trim & collate into an Itty Bitty fraction booklet.

The featured FREEBIE today is a short story "Who Will Be King". It's special in that it includes ALL 220 Dolch sight words!
I've highlighted words in various colors, so that you know which lists they come from. Hope you find it helpful.
Well that's it for today. The carpet cleaners will be here this morning, so my office will be off limits to creative messes.
Time to think up something else to fill up my day with. Ummm, shopping before the crazy crush begins sounds good . . . Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

I think you’ll really like the versatility of the Turkey Feathers number packet, as you can pick and choose what’s appropriate for your students PK-1st.
What’s especially nice about the variety, is that you can easily differentiate the activities to suit various student levels.
Use them as table top worksheets, independent centers, whole group activities, something for early finishers, homework, interventions, or a sub folder.
The packet includes a trace & write counting booklet, a variety of worksheets, games, puzzles, several assessments, odd & even activities, plus a graphing extension.
There's also a turkey slider “craftivity”, with “slider strips” for numbers 0-10, 0-30, counting backwards from 10-0, as well as 20-0, plus skip counting strips for 2s, 3s, 5s & 10s.

While you're there, I'd so appreciate it if you'd follow me, so that you'll know when I post the latest FREEBIE or am throwing a sale.
Speaking of FREEBIES, today's is my "Tasting Feast" packet. It's filled with everything you need to throw a Thanksgiving Tasting Feast for your students: signs, ingredients, letters and notes home + tips.
The packet is one of the first Thanksgiving activities I posted years ago, before all of the clip art, fonts, and graphic design programs that I use now, but I think you'll still find it helpful.
A tasting feast is a fun and easy alternative to help celebrate this historical event. My kiddos absolutely loved it.
Half of them chose to be Wampanoag Native Americans, the other half were Pilgrims. They especially enjoyed making hats and headbands, as well as collars and paper bag vests to wear.
Well that's it for today. Thanks for stopping by. The carpet cleaners are coming tomorrow to do the whole house.
Babies, toddlers and a puppy have taken it's toll, so it will be a busy day getting ready.
At least I feel energized to get things spruced up for Thanksgiving. Wishing you a carefree day.
