This Thanksgiving activity covers several Common Core standards and it's FuN! Your students will listen to and learn the "real Thanksgiving story" with the "T is for Turkey" read aloud then create their own ABC Thanksgiving Book all while practicing for a Readers Theater (script included). Also included for the Readers Theater are colorful letter cards for each student to hold up while it's their turn to speak.
**NOTE: These activities are meant to be paired with the book "T is for Turkey" (Available for free on wegivebooks.com. Also available in most libraries.) But it can also be done independentely without the book using the Readers Theater script and your own explainations for students. It's up to you!
