Hope you are surviving the long haul until Thanksgiving Break. In my district, we do parent-teacher conferences the Tuesday before Turkey day. So on one hand you are excited for those much deserved days off. On the other, it is stressful to think about all the work that goes into prepping for and holding 20+ conferences in one day.
If you are looking for some activities to get you through, here are my 4 favorite Thanksgiving Themed Freebies!
BUT kids do enjoy it! Even if it is just for pretend. This shopping for Thanksgiving activity by Blair Peterson gets everyone hungry and practicing real world math so it is a win win! Students have a budget for shopping and get to choose what to buy. Then they must add it all up and make sure they didn’t go over. It is always so funny to see what they buy. You always have the one who doesn’t get any turkey-ha! #nomeatthanksgiving #nothankyou
One thing my team does to stay sane is Thanksgiving rotations. We each (5 of us) pick an activity to prep then rotate our classes which usually takes the whole day. I pretend I teach middle school and do the same thing 5 times throughout the day! It’s fantastic and the kids love it. Last year I did this roll-a-turkey by Cori Bloom which you can find for free here—> Roll A Turkey
Well I hope you found something you can use! I’d love for you to share your favorite pre or post Thanksgiving activity!
