I DID IT!! I surprised myself! I really didn't think I could finish a Mommy School packet in time for Thanksgiving. But the moving truck arrives tomorrow, and I have this done and ready to share! I am really quite excited about this T is for Thanksgiving packet. My Little Man has been gobbling like a turkey for months. (Funny thing--he also associates "Gobble, gobble" with garbage because one of his books described a garbage truck gobbling up the trash!)
In this packet, you can find:
* Ideas for Thanksgiving games and activities
* Ideas for Thanksgiving art, science, and math
* Ideas for Thanksgiving food crafts
* Thanksgiving book ideas
* Thanksgiving songs and fingerplays
* Ideas for teaching the shape of the week (triangle)
* Ideas for teaching the number of the week (four)
* Ideas for teaching the letter of the week (T)
* Tons of corresponding visual aids and printables.
I am super excited about these fun "T riddles" in the packet. You can use these as riddles or as flashcards. Here is the turkey riddle:
In this packet, you can also find a Thanksgiving colors book. It is a little poem that describes 5 different colors you may see at your Thanksgiving feast! Here are a couple of pages:
There are TONS of ideas packed into 56 pages--there is definitely something for everyone! Be sure to review the credits on the last page for more great ideas! BUT... my friends, I am just not sure if I can justify spending 12+ hours on creating these packets every 2 weeks. I do want to share my work and make it available for our kiddos. However, I am considering creating packets in the future with all of my own work and charging a simple $0.99 download via Paypal. The L, H, and T packets will remain free... but with my husband's urging, I've decided to consider this.
