This activity is great for Thanksgiving working on sequencing, reading comprehension/WH questions and following directions. There is a mini Thanksgiving story with real life pictures I took to accompany the story. There is a sequencing page with the pictures for children to sequence the story. You can either read the story to them or have the children read the story on their own. There are eight comprehension questions to go along with the story including who, what, where, when, why, and how questions. Then there is a following directions activity with a sheet set up with two clip arts of a turkey and tree already on it. The children need to follow 20 directions to either draw pictures or place the 10 real life pictures in different areas on the paper depending on the linguistic terms used. Terms used include: on top, to the right, to the left, on, top left, top right, above, between, and below. You can have the children just draw the pictures, or if you have more time they can color their drawings. You can also expand the lesson by asking the children to describe where certain pictures/drawings are or asking them about their favorite TV show and Thanksgiving food that they drew. There is a sample of completed Thanksgiving following direction activities included. There is also a parent letter included describing what the students worked on.
If you purchased my Halloween activity then you should enjoy this because it is very similar, just geared towards Thanksgiving!
