Thanksgiving Resources Your Students Will Gobble Up

It's that time of year where I am knee deep into assessments.  My planning game is whatever is going to keep them on task, quiet  and will keep them busy so I can assess.

Thankfully I use ESGI to assess so I can move about the classroom with my iPad to hide find a quiet corner for me to hear the student.  If you haven't tried ESGI, you must. You can read more about it here.  You can also sign-up for a FREE 60 day trial.  Go ahead treat yourself, what are you waiting for?

Thankfully I do have two half days this week where I will have a sub so I can assess my kids.  This of course is never enough time, but sometime is better then no time.  I will be leaving a lot of independent work for my kiddos.  My class is challenging this year, I'm not going to lie.  Crossing my fingers that my sub shows, I've been out 4 times this year without a sub. Does your district have a difficult time getting subs?

This week we will be going all out Turkey and focussing on Past and Present.  You can click any of the pictures below to find out more about these resources that are available in my TpT store.  Some are for sale, others are FREE.
 The Long Ago and Today resource has an emergent reader and some sorting activities.

The Thankful Turkey is a longtime favorite of mine.  The students will make a boy or girl pilgrim turkey they write about what they are most thankful for, after we discuss the true meaning fo what it means to be thankful.

It will be a busy week we Had Friday off unexpectedly due to the fires here in California, and Monday for Veteran day. We also have the entire week off for Thanksgiving.  Although I'm looking forward to the break, I'm not looking forward to trying to cram in all of my assessments before Friday.  It seems every time I try to start something happens, the phone rings, there's a problem I need to handle a bloody nose... Does this happen to you.

I'm hoping the week goes by without any issue and I can zip right through them.  May you and your family have a fabulous Thanksgiving, just in case I don't write another post.  Have a great week.
