Thanksgiving Activities

This post was updated October 2019

Are you looking for some fabulous Thanksgiving Ideas? I have some fun centers and crafts (and maybe a freebie for you).

Today, we started to to use activities from my Turkey, Turkey, Turkey Math and Literacy Centers. I recently updated this with NEW centers, fonts, and clip art. If you purchased it last year, you can download the updated version FREE.

Matching upper and lower case letters is a great skill for kids. Helping the turkey find his pumpkin is a fun way for kids to practice this skills.

 Do you do word sorts with your kids? This Thanksgiving center is adorable. You class will love it. You high kids can write the words for an added challenge. 

My class LOVES Roll, Say, Keep. We play it at least once a week. The kids roll the dice, read the word, and keep it if they are right. I included letter cards as well for my pumpkins who only know a few sight words. Literacy games are all about feeling successful, right? 

I added the same sight words to my sensory bin. This sensory bin has bird seed, leaves, and hay. I also added plastic letters for students to build the words. You could also put the letter pumpkins above in it instead of the sight word cards. Or, you could do both.

This is one of the first FREE resources that I created. Last year, it go a makeover with new clip art and fonts. 
{Don't worry, this isn't the only freebie}
You can grab it here. Please leave me some feedback letting me know what you think.

I made turkeys for sums of 5-10. Each sum has a different colored frame to help with differentiation. That way you tell one group to work on the yellow frames (sums of 5) and another group tcan work on the brown frames (sums of 10).

How cute are these turkey ten frames? The pumpkins are from the Target Dollar spot. For advanced students, have them take a number and then tell you how many more to make 10.

This another one of my first creations -Turkey Craft and Games Decomposing 10.  This one got a makeover two years ago. The craft is a MILLION times cuter.

There is a turkey game where kids can decompose 5 and decompose 10. Each turkey has a number sentence and students add the correct number of feather. Then, they can record their answer on the recording sheet.

There is also an adorable version of shake and spill 5 and 10 with a Thanksgiving theme. It is a great way to keep your class engaged during this crazy time of year. You can get my Turkey Craft and Games HERE.

Ready for your FREEBIE????This center is forpracticing of 5 and sums of 10. It includes recording sheets. You can get it FREE HERE.
