The kids won't be focused. Let's just accept that. Instead, you can sneak in some extra learning while the kiddos enjoy some Thanksgiving games and activities. Little prep for you, fun for them. We all win.
Here are 4 (FOUR!) freebie Thanksgiving games just for you!
Pin the Feather on the Turkey (Practice for Multiple Skills)
A Slice of P.I.E. (Author's Purpose)
Turkey Fractions (Identifying and Representing Fractions)
Thank You, Sarah: The Woman Who Saved Thanksgiving. Oh yeah- you can grab this FREE comprehension check to go along with the book as well!
You can download any or ALL of these games for free. Please note that the actual games are in color. They are shown here in black and white simply because I don't have a colored printer (maybe I should put that on the xmas list :) ) Just click on any of the above pictures to snag your free copy!
And be sure to download my "Thanksgiving in a SNAP" Planning Guide <---also free! You'll find it loaded with clickable links for games, activities, and MORE to cover every content area!
Phew - that was a lot to get through! Hope you find something useful! I'd love to hear what you used in your classroom!
