It's Thanksgiving on TPT!

November is here and in full swing! I'm rolling out my TPT store this week with a new literacy and social studies unit, "It's Thanksgiving!".  This unit includes some great resources to keep your kiddos busy for the next few days before Thanksgiving break.
It includes the following:
-Turkeys can/have/are organizer
- Children then vs. now Venn diagram
-Describing Pilgrims bubble map
-Describing Native Americans bubble map
-Making words with 'pilgrims'
-Making words with 'turkeys'
-Making singular nouns plural (with Thanksgiving words)
-Thanksgiving ABC order
-'If you give a pilgrim a pie....' creative writing activity to go along with If You Give a Mouse a Cookie
Take a little peek at what you get below!

This week we are reviewing addition, subtraction, and fact families. I made this cute little math activity for my firsties to work on one day this week. All you need is a set of dominos and this FREEBIE! Students will choose 3 dominos, add the 2 parts together to make the whole, record the 3 numbers and then write a fact family using those numbers. Easy peasy! Click on the picture to download this activity!

Since my birthday is tomorrow and I'm feeling a little generous, I'm going to be giving away my It's Thanksgiving! unit to the first 2 people who leave me a comment with their email telling me their favorite part about the Thanksgiving holidays!

Don't forget to check out my new TPT store! There are a few freebies on there too : )
