Before our Thanksgiving break we spent a few days learning about turkeys. Our centers were Turkey themed also.
At this center they sorted sentences about turkeys and had to decide if the sentence was a telling sentence or asking sentence.
At this center they sorted turkeys by 2’s, 5’s, and 10’s and recorded their work by writing to 100 by 2’s, 5’s, and 10’s.
Here they rolled 2 dice to make an addition sentence. After they found the sum they got to color a part on the Thanksgiving scene with that answer.
They sorted turkeys by colors and graphed them and then added sets.
This center was turkey feather math. They sorted facts on the turkey feathers and put them on the turkeys with that sum and recorded their answers.
After reading the book All About Turkeys we made our own book to take home called Tell Me About Turkeys.
We worked on writing super sentences about Turkeys using our story wheel, read story problems to add turkey feathers and write an addition sentence to go with the story in our Fancy Feather Math book, and made a Turkey Ten Feathers.
We finished up our learning of turkeys with a neat art project that we combined with our math lesson on symmetry. We did our best to make symmetrical turkeys. Take a close look and see the neat designs they made.
We are all ready to eat real turkey now! The kids loved making cards for our pen pals at Emporia State and cards for our special families. I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I am very thankful for the wonderful group of kids that I get to work with every day and the support of the families. Many Blessings to each of you!!
