This is a great activity for your students. It integrates social students, math, reading, and phonics. With this activity the students will read a poem called, Be Thankful (I am not sure of the origin of the poem). They will highlight the vowels that they find and make a graph showing their findings. They will answer phonics questions beaded on the poem and math questions based on the graph. I have used this as a whole group activity, literacy/ math center and a review activity.
