We read a poem daily and then enter it into our Poetry Journal. Of course, we identify rhyming words, punctuation and sight words.
We also add the Five Fat Turkeys poem to our Thanksgiving Book. We tear paper for the tree and use thumbprints to make the turkeys.
|The cover of our book...|
|We write a Journal Page for the Thanksgiving Book using facts we have learned after reading Gail Gibbons' book Thanksgiving Is...|
|Of course, we include our Three Sisters page.|
|We learn about how happy the Pilgrims must have been to hear the words, "Land Ho!" after their long, hard journey. We all yell, "Land Ho!" and do a happy dance. It's Kindergarten...|
|Of course, we work on this in small group so that I may help guide them in the right direction since this is a new skill. Practice, practice, practice!|
We spread butcher paper down our hallway and share our feast
(grapes, cheese cubes, deli turkey and juice boxes) with other classes.
We couldn't have this fun activity without some amazing parents. And that is Thanksgiving in Kindergarten!
