This is a fun Thanksgiving activity that really helps students practice using context as a clue as they find the vocabulary words and then find their meaning. My daughter Izsabella and I have written a cute little story called, Tina Turkey Learns a Thanksgiving Day Lesson, where Tina the Turkey has a very different idea of what Thanksgiving dinner is going to be like. It wasn’t until she realizes she was going to be the dinner that Tina learns a very valuable lesson about bragging
The standard used this lesson is for 2nd grade Common Core LACC.2.L.3.4.a, but can easily be adapted for the same standard for any grade. This 2nd grade standard can also be used for Kindergarten and 1st grade students who need enrichment and 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students who are still struggling with context clues or finding a moral in a story and need intervention or re-teaching.
Thank you and I hope you enjoy our story ~ Adam, Iszabella and The School of Athens
