Thanksgiving Fun and a FREEBIES!

Well, it was a short fast week for us!  We managed to throw in some fun centers!  These centers you can find in my Happy Thanksgiving Pack at my tpt store.  Keep reading for more ideas and a couple of FREEBIES!  




They loved this one!  I added colored dots to match the feathers to make it easier for my kids to build the words.


If you bought my unit, make sure you download the revised one...there's a "goof" on this one...do you see it?
I fixed it and revised it!

I always love how these turn out each year!  We've been talking about symmetry so we designed these cool shirts for our Native American friends.  



This center was a HIT!  They caught the turkey with a fishing pole and then bingo dotted the matching letter.
Teacher Tip:  Instead of paper clips which always get pulled off from the fishing pole, just simply staple the corner of the game piece and it works perfect!  Easy peasy, lemon squeezy!
This sheet is a FREEBIE for you at the end of this post.

I saw this fun idea on pinterest from kidscount1234.com
This is under my reading loft...the kids lay under it and "look at the stars" then they can write the words they read...it's fun because it dark under my loft so it creates a "nighttime like" feel!



 Here are a few more pages to our Thanksgiving fact book...



If you grab these freebies give me a little love...in comments please!  :)

  7. I cannot tell you how much I LOVE all of the activities you create! My kids have had so much fun with them and the intervention pack for November has really made a difference with some of my little strugglers. Thanks so much for sharing these freebies. Now, if I could just find the time to make all this awesome stuff...

  10. Love the freebies! Thanks! I love that your Thanksgiving fact book has blanks with sight words to fill in. I have the book from Kinderlit which I love, but I am thinking of switching to yours so we are practicing with the sight words! Is it in your packet?

  11. Mrs. Bossy,
    The book isn't in the packet. It's mainly die-cuts from my school...it was adapted from the kinderlit book as well. I changed up some of it so that's another reason it isn't in the packet. :) Thanks for visiting!

  24. Ok, I tried to recreate your supper cute symmetry Indians and fit them on one big 11x17 sheet of paper. However, there's not enough room to do a big pattern, so they have to be pretty big. Can I have the rough measurements for them? I'm loving your Thanksgiving packet by the way! Can't wait for your Christmas things!! :)

  29. Hi, Julie!
    I know it's a crazy time of year to be buying a Monster Unit, but I saw it on Pinterest, followed the links until I found it on TPT, and it finally led me back to you! And what do you know- I already follow your blog, LOL! I really liked what I saw online, so I bought your Monster Unit. I wish you would enable the email feeds for your blog (or maybe you have already done that, and I just don't see it?) because that would remind me to come check out your great ideas!) When blog updates don't wind up in my inbox, I forget to check them!
    Anyway, I love your ideas. Keep up the great work! If you ever want to trade products, just let me know!
