This blog post will share some of these activities enjoyed over Thankgsiving which help build literacy, math and most importantly teaching thankfulness.

I recently bought some amazing graphics and thought I could make something to help my students understand synonyms and antonyms. You can find this activity in my store. It requires some prep as you need to cut out the feathers and turkeys – but I laminated them and stored them in their own folders for Thanksgiving. 🙂
The second activity could also be found in my store and this one builds on subtraction facts within 10. Some of my students are struggling with this concept and they could use all the practice they can get. This is also arranged with feathers on turkeys – so much fun!
The next activity is provided by Striving to Be Bold and I love it as it instils the idea of being thankful everyday in our lives. The idea is that each person writes what they’re thankful for on each ‘hand’ to represent their hand and then hang it up in a tree like she’s done it here. Check it out on her blog. 🙂
This activity is similar to the one above but in a turkey version. I love this idea! You could even get each student to create their own ‘gratitude turkeys’ and hand them to encourage the students to think of more things they are thankful for.
