We are learning to read and write our number words and this gave us some practice. We used the poem 10 Little Indian Boys.
This month we also are learning about fractions. We made these cute fraction indians.
During small groups we matched letters for beginning sounds to the pictures on our turkey's feathers.
We rolled a cube to see who could make a pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving Dinner first.
They had listen for the beginning sound to know where to place their ingredients.
They chose an object out of the bucket and found the letter that matched the beginning sound. Then, they bingo dotted that letter on their paper.
They rolled the die, wrote the number and drew that many feathers.
I got this idea called "Pluck the Feathers" from a friend, Mrs. Estes. The children use a timer to see how many feathers they can pluck. After they count, they record that number on their paper.
Since we are learning our number words, they had to match the pilgrim's number to the number word. Next, they found the number on their paper (they are mixed up) wrote the number word, and colored it to match.
We filled our cornucopia with nutritious fruits and veggies, but we had to match the picture to the word using beginning sounds, and then we had to count and write the number. Math and Literacy in one!
