Are You Ready to Ship Your Students Off to a New World?

Yes, the last few weeks have been a long haul. I'm VERY tired, and so are the kids, but we've got a couple more school days to survive!

Are you ready to ship your students off to a New World? It's a tough time of year! Time to pull all the stops out and try some super fun, engaging activities. (Shh... don't tell them they're still learning!)

It's time to pull all the stops out! Time for high interest activities that involve conversation and movement.  Here are some ideas:

I'll be pulling out this activity from my Science and Social Studies Printables for November.

We'll also be reading informational text and learning about turkeys! (This is also in the Science and Social Studies Printables for November.)
 
 
I like to let the children work in pairs or small groups while working in these informational text booklets. It encourages conversation to discuss the information they are learning, and encourages them to use their new vocabulary.
 


Speaking of "reading with a partner", we'll be finishing up these Informational Thanksgiving Books for Visualization and Illustration that we started last week. 


I also let them loose on this Scholastic Site, which has loads of images and information about the First Thanksgiving. We are lucky to have 7 tablets and 3 chrome books for the children to use.
 

Finally, we'll be getting our reading, writing, word work, and math skills in with these Fun No Prep Activities for Thanksgiving.

Planning ahead? Check out some of these blog posts:(See the images for the links!)

Thanksgiving Resources

Wow, Thankgiving is practically upon us!  

Can you believe it?  After that, Christmas, then another year!  Life, please slow down?

Well, I want to spend the next 7 school days celebrating Thanksgiving. It's a great opportunity to "throw in" a little history, as well as enjoy the things for which we are grateful!

How do I squeeze all this in? Well, I always start with loads of books.  Here's a collection of books I've loved. Some are fun, some are informational. I like to have a lot of books for each interest and each reading level so they all can enjoy them at independent reading time!

                                                            

Books are always a great start. Movies are another fun way to enjoy the holidays!

Here are a couple of movies I've found on Youtube with a Thanksgiving theme.  Feel free to preview them and choose what is right for your group!

I can't let Thanksgiving go by without a reference to football! When I was a kid, we always had a football game in the morning, and a turkey in the afternoon. (My dad was a football coach!)
