Thanksgiving Glyphs:

*2 Glyph Themes* Thanksgiving Table Glyph & Dress a Turkey Glyph

Each Glyph comes with:

Student Checklist: Each theme includes different questions that students check off the answers to in order to create their individual glyph.

All Cut-outs: These are meant to be cut out and glued onto construction paper.

Background Page & Cut-outs: Rather than having to glue onto a separate page, the background page is included separate from the cut-outs.

Bar Graph: This is a simple bar graph that students use to record data from a question for each glyph. You can then use them to have students draw conclusions based on the data.

Thanksgiving Activities:

• Word Searches: 2 levels included with Thanksgiving vocabulary terms. Answer Keys included.

• “Find someone who...” Thanksgiving Bingo: (2 options) This is a fun way to get students to move, interact, and share their Thanksgiving favorites. Students fill in their own Bingo boards, and then play! (full page or half page option).

• What I’m Thankful for at Home: Students fill in the top 5 things they are thankful for at their home.

Two options are included – one with blank feathers, and one telling students what to fill in on each feather (what they are thankful for at home, in school, with friends, etc.).

• Why I’m Thankful for...Organizer: This is a 2 page cut, glue, and fold activity option where students fill in why they are thankful for their family, home, school and friends. Two cover options are included (one already filled in and one blank) and two writing options are included.
