Happy Thanksgiving! We had a great time on Friday making these little turkeys! I did a quick demo and then the children each created their own! Each turkey seemed to have its own personality!
They each picked out a pine cone, tried out where to put their leaf tail feathers, and then created their turkeys! The children really seemed to enjoy making them!
We also make a little poem about what we are thankful for! The children came up with some awesome ideas! I will try to post some of these next week! Forgot to take pictures of them!
The children seemed to really enjoy making their fall booklets. They did an excellent job matching the pictures to the sentences using some of the reading strategies we have been using thus far!
Then they completed their own little book matching the pictures to the correct page.
We collected the pages into a little book and then decorated it with some stickers! Love those peel and stick foam stickers!
I hope they got a chance to read them with you! We have been focusing on the color words, and simple sight words, beginning and ending sounds, and using the pictures to help figure out new words thus far. Hopefully they can read all or some of the words or pages to you all by themselves!
We have been working on colour words and learning about fall. One of the stories in one of our books has a story about hiding in the leaves. I found some awesome leaf stamps a few years ago and we used them to make these neat leaf piles and practise our colour words at the same time! Can you see the little face hiding in the leaf pile?
We made these turkey magnets with our Big Buddies! You can tell they are turkeys, right?
I love these flowers made with pattern blocks.
