I created a fun Thanksgiving program
for our home-school last week. However, we got the flu
shots, and now we all have the flu. Oh well, perhaps my organization
can help you this week instead.
Last week, I tried to find a
counting turkey book rather last minute.We just wrapped up a four week theme unit on government and elections.Thanksgiving quickly sneaked up on my
schedule.On the 7th of November, the
library was clean out of Thanksgiving books. I scavenged
Half Price Books but found nothing. Amazon and Barnes and Noble
were too expensive. I didn't give
up. My persistence paid off when I found a lovely poem
on the internet. I followed up by making this activity go
with it. You may download the poem and the craft
from my Teachers Pay Teachers store front, "Teaching For Fun".
Don't forget to clean out your local library of Christmas books
now. I did!
It seems like yesterday school started. But now we are blowing through the fall. I am making lot games for the winter right now.
Here at our home-school we are wrapping up first grade math with a review of adding /subtracting to 100, a review of money and time.
The kids gave "Place Value Candy Corn" a big thumbs up, so I created a Thanksgiving version too. This time I added a second level of cards. We can play "Go Fish". I also added a more advanced place mat for building numbers to 999.
