Thanksgiving is such an exciting and special time of year. It is fun to have themed activities and centers, but it is also important that they are truly beneficial to the kids at the same time!
The neat thing about this bundle is that you get 2 nonfiction articles about the pilgrims and their voyage to the "New World". This is a great way to get some extra social studies and history in while working on important reading skills! You will also get a fun creative writing activity for your kids asking what they would think is important to bring with them to help start their new colony! :)
Included in this download:
-2 Nonfiction Reading Comprehension Articles with questions
-Context Clues and ABC Order Practice
-Synonym and Antonym Pumpkins
-"What Would I Bring to the New World?" Creative Writing
-Thanksgiving Word Creator & Adjective Activity
-Dictionary Hunt Practice
-Sequencing a Recipe
These activities can be given individually or in a grouping of your choice. It is also lots of fun to put one into a center and allow the kids to work on it with partners.
I truly hope you and your class enjoy these activities and I would love to hear what your kids think of them too!
Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Teaching! -Mrs. Walshie ;)
