Thanksgiving SUPER Language Packet!
A large packet with lots of Thanksgiving vocabulary, many language skills, and worksheets/games, activities!
This packet contains 76 total pages of language worksheets and activities focusing on:
**Thanksgiving Vocabulary: Thanksgiving pictures and vocabulary are interwoven throughout the packet. Even if I have a skill page with everyday vocabulary (for example: listing everyday items from categories), the pictures correlate with Thanksgiving! This allows students to have ample exposure to Thanksgiving vocabulary and additional opportunities for teachers/parents to ask, "what is that picture?", etc. My students LOVE seasonal activities and games and will ask me the very next session after Halloween..."are we starting the Thanksgiving games and work????"
**Thanksgiving Scrambled Word Sentences: 3 pages, plus 1 Create Your Own. Students must unscramble the words to create Thanksgiving-themed sentences.
**Formulate a Sentence: 3 pages, plus 1 Create Your Own page. Students must formulate a sentence with specific words and details using provided Thanksgiving-related words.
**Formulate Sentences—Cards: 4 pages of cards, 6 cards per page (24 total word cards), plus 2 pages of Create Your Own cards! If you want to play Memory, print two sets of cards. Students can pick a card from a basket/pile/bag OR play Memory. Students should use each word in a Thanksgiving-themed sentence with specific words and details.
**Categories: 2 worksheet pages, students list 3-5 items per category...8 categories per page. 1 Create Your Own category page. 5 pages of category cards for game: Help Tom and Tina Turkey Stay in Disguise! 6 cards per page (30 total cards).

Bonus Game Cards included (Go Again, Earn 2 extra points, Lose a Turn, Lose 2 points, etc) to make game play more fun! 1 Create Your Own page included for categories, and 1 Create Your Own page included for Bonus Game cards (in case you wish to change wording).

Other goals not directly targeted:
--Word order: When formulating sentences, have students focus on using correct word order!
--Grammar: When formulating sentences, have students use correct grammar, such as verb tense, subject/verb agreement, etc.
--Articulation: If students are at the sentence and conversation level for certain sounds, or if they need to practice 'clear speech' (slowing down, all sounds in words, pauses between words, etc), you can use this language packet to target their articulation goals at higher levels!
***As always, if you find something that you don't like about the packet (even a small error), let me know, I am extremely flexible and more than anything, I want the packets to 'do the job' and help kiddos achieve their goals!
