Turkey Games!


We read Turkey Trouble by Wendy Silvano

Then we rewrote the book and pretended like the turkey dressed up like us!

Can the turkey really trick the farmer with his disguise?
Will the Farmer think the turkey is ______?

During Math time, we played SWIPE (the turkey version)!  It's a great partner game for counting and comparing numbers!

We are also making some counting turkey books at our math center.  It is a wonderful resource that has the kiddos counting, making ten frames, writing numbers and making sets. Click on the pictures below to take you right to my store.

I also put some math games including the SWIPE game at my store!  Come check it out!  Click on the picture below to take you straight there!

Have a thankful week with your kiddos!!

This time of the year, I am very aware of all of the blessings I have been given.  One is being able to share ideas with all my fellow teachers.  I am so thankful for all my followers, those who purchase and the positive feedback I receive from all of you.
I am having a sale in my TeachersPayTeachers store to say Thank You!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Learning is Fun!

And so begins the busy season!

This week we have been busy having fun while we are learning.
We made Ice Cream for "I" week!  (cue the shaking music!) Boy, were our arms tired from shaking those bags!

 It was worth all the work and cold hands though.  We made the most delicious ice cream and decorated it with sprinkles!  Yummy!!

 We began our Thanksgiving crafts and learning last week too.  These are our pattern turkeys!  They really did a great job and it was a terrific way for me to assess who still needs some work with patterning.

Today we did our directed drawing of turkeys!  Aren't they amazing!  They absolutely loved designing their own turkey feathers.

One of our small group math activities is to roll and color. You can find this one on TPT from Growing Kinders.

Another math small group was making turkeys and counting the feathers.  Great cutting, gluing, counting and following directions practice.

My last small group for math today was working on taller/shorter with partners.  This game is from Kim Adsit's "Which is Taller?" unit
