With Thanksgiving just a week and a half away we began thinking about Thanksgiving and what it is all about. I pulled out all our fun Thanksgiving activities and printed and laminated a few more. These are all activities that others have shared either through Teacher's Pay Teachers or on their own website.
This cute Turkey number game is from Thanksgiving Turkey Number Center by Lavinda Pop on Teacher's Pay Teachers. Most had a fun time with this one with the colorful clothespins to open and close and making the turkey feathers any way they wanted.
The ABC Match Mat was from Thanksgiving Preschool by Creative Learning Fun. Many of the math related Turkey activities were from the Free Thanksgiving Math and Literacy Park for Pre-K by www.totschooling.com. So we put puzzles together checking for the number at the bottom of the puzzle as well as puzzles with no numbers on the bottom. We played cards with two letters on them and we had to discover the letter that goes in the middle. I think the children enjoyed them. They either zipped right through them to get to making Fall bracelets, or they took their time and did them over and over again.
And of course we went outside to have some Fall fun as well. They worked a little in every spot: mud kitchen working with flowers and leaves, spelling their name with rocks, stepping from one lot to another, building in the block table or lifting small stumps, making music, Everyone was very busy, and everyone is sleeping peacefully now.
We will continue the afternoon with Yogurt and mixed fruit for snack, followed by a short story time, and more Thanksgiving themed activities and assessing what we have for the Operation Christmas Child boxes. In our stories we are reading about sharing with others and Thanksgiving.
Our menu for today was: Bagels, Apple Slices, and Milk for breakfast. Crockpot Chicken and Sweet Potatoes, Steamed Broccoli, Whole Grain Bread, and Milk for Lunch. And of course Yogurt and Mixed fruit for snack. They ate most everything as usual. They do love to eat. 😁😁😁
This blog is purely for sharing ideas and resources for preschool age children. I love teaching and encouraging the children that I get the privilege to teach. I hope that you, the reader, will find a joy in teaching the children in your life. What a blessing to be a teacher. :)
