Twas the Week Before Thanksgiving!

Twas the week before Thanksgiving,
And all through the class...
All the creatures were stirring,
And the teachers are slowly running out of gas!

BUT, we can make it Friends!
Only 6 more days to go for us.
How about you?
Do you get the whole week of Thanksgiving off?
Lucky Ducks!

We'll be spending this last week before the BIG feast working with our latest 
This is one of our Top Turkey Book Picks for this time of year.
Ugh! Sorry for the fuzzy pic...Click the source below to see it in all it's glory! 

Here's a sneak peek at how we'll be trotting through this story...

Syllable Sorting

Sentence Scramble!
Word Building

Sentence Sorting gives them practice with Fiction and Non Fiction sentences about turkeys!
Did you know turkeys have a poor sense of smell?
So, they cannot smell the mashed potatoes or pumpkin pie!
Poor guys!

And lot's more!

We are linking up with Gina over at Beach Sand and Lesson Plans. Bop on over and get some great ideas for Turkey Day

  1. Super adorable, as always!
    We have the whole week off. Used to be furlough we're just off. IDK how that all works - but, although it's a tinier paycheck I am THANKFUL to have the week off! :D I am running on empty!

  2. Love your unit! The story is one of my favorites for Thanksgiving too! My school has a 2-day week but then we get a 5 day long weekend! HOORAY!
