I am so excited about this week’s Thematic Thursday because with a Thanksgiving Theme, I get to show my thanks to all my blogging buddies. The blogging community is such a great PLC! I tell my friends all the time how much I learn from reading blogs, and I hope you all feel the same. I hope that this linky makes planning fun and easy for my readers. So…let’s see what I can share with you…
In my store, there are a variety of Thanksgiving resources. You can check them out by clicking the images below.
Speaking of book selections, I was so excited to locate these great pins with Thanksgiving book lists. Aren’t they great? I love being able to just print the graphic to carry the list with me. They are linked to the pins, so feel free to pin to your own boards. These book choices are excellent.
I was so excited to find such beautiful and thoughtful craft/craftivity ideas. One of my all time favorites from my search was this anonymous pin. What a clever way to get your students thinking about what’s important to them. I will be doing this next week I believe, and I look forward to displaying them.
Speaking of hands, how about this helping hand tree. We use the Bucket Filler program, and I think this would be a nice accent to show how we help others. We have an angel tree each year, and I think we could go from hands to angels. Nice ring to it huh??
I also love this pumpkin from The Moffat Girls. I think you could put a reading twist on it though and make book report pumpkins.
Notebook and Teaching Printables
Here are a few more foldables and graphic organizer freebies that I just loved. I know it helps to have someone do the searching and share them, so here you go….just click!
This little freebie has response activities ready for each of these read alouds. How nice!
This nice little freebie is great for kinders and first. It includes handwriting practice and vocabulary.
I have really gotten into using Close Reading strategies with my students, and this looks great for the middle grades. This Close Read from Teach 123-Michelle is for the upper grades. It’s perfect for guided reading.
Do you have favorite Thanksgiving activity you use and are willing to share? Feel free to share your ideas in the comments, link up, or email me (and I’ll add them to my post).
Have a great weekend (and feel free to link up through next Wednesday readers).
