We always start off each week doing one of these letter dot pages for our focus letter of the week. Hunter loves doing these and it is always the first activity we do after I introduce the letter.
Since it happened to be Thanksgiving time when he studied the letter T, we played a memory/matching game with turkeys and other Thanksgiving related pictures.
Hunter colored the turkeys different colors based on the color words.
He cut out numbers and glued them on to the picture with that number of items.
Hunter stamped turquoise triangles onto the letter T.
Table toys are one of his favorite activities!
Harper likes to do whatever Hunter is doing.
Hunter made this cute turkey craft.
He loved this turkey with feathers that spelled his name.
Another fun week of preschool at Our Crafts N Things!
So, now that the holidays are all over I am finally getting around to finishing up posting about what we did at Thanksgiving time. I am really going to work on posting things this year when they are actually helpful But maybe someone can use this idea for next year.
After we learned about what life was like for the pilgrims, we learned what it was like to be a Wampanoag Indian.
I made this little wetu- the type of house the Wampanoag lived in.
Then we read If you Lived at the Time of Squanto and wrote down information that we thought was interesting and added it to our wetu.
Hailey made a book of facts about the Wamanoag using her 5 favorite things she had learned.
She wrote what she had learned and drew an illustration to go with it.
Hailey also made this cute turkey. Then I had her write a paragraph about why she thought a turkey would or would not make a good pet.
From now on, I’m going to post things when we actually do them. Promise this time
Just in time for Christmas, here is what we did back at Thanksgiving time
We read The Night Before Thanksgiving and then Hailey filled this out about the story.
We read several books about what it would be like to be pilgrim boy or girl.
Hailey made a book about what it would be like to be a pilgrim girl.
Inside her book she wrote about the different things she would have done and drew pictures to go with it. (Printables from The Razzle Dazzle Classroom.)
I saw a fun idea at Around the Kampire that was a little different than the usual disguise a turkey.
Hailey came up with three good reasons to eat hot dogs on Thanksgiving, instead of turkeys.
Then she made a turkey disguised as a pigeon.
Each person in our family made these cute turkeys that have a little pouch in the front. Then we wrote reasons we were thankful for each other and put them in the pouches. It was so nice to see what everyone said about each other.
