Thanksgiving Partner Play, Turkey Themed Fluency Activity
Partner plays are great for building fluency and comprehension skills. Tom's Lucky Day is a Thanksgiving partner play for the middle grades about how a turkey tricks the farmer to save his life. The play includes before, during, and after reading activities for vocabulary, deeper comprehension, and additional fluency practice.
HOW TEACHERS CAN USE THIS PARTNER PLAY IN THE CLASSROOM:
The play is five pages in length and includes two voices. I recommend using this resource as a fluency center during your guided reading block or using it with your small groups. Each of my partner plays take about 3-4 days to complete because of the supplementary materials included, but teachers can pick and choose which activities work best for their students' needs.
WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE PARTNER PLAY RESOURCE?
The partner play comes with the following activities and materials:
- 5 page Tom's Lucky Day Script
- Schema Builder about Planning a Thanksgiving Day Menu
- A vocabulary page (Using Context Clues) and word cards
- Questioning task cards (12 cards), and a Response Form
- Four Square Comprehension Page, and
- Thanksgiving Writing Extension (retelling or acrostic poem
MORE ABOUT THIS RESOURCE:
Teachers can use the activities and play for paired reading during Read with Partner or the Guided Reading block. Students will practice finding text evidence to make comparisons, analyze character traits and development, and story elements.
As a supplement to this unit (or as a stand alone), you can also add in the unit, My Lucky Day Reading and Writing Unit to address comprehension and writing skills featuring the Six Writing Traits (voice and word choice) with the link below:
