The First Thanksgiving

We are still here!  Sorry for the absence this week!  If you have not checked out Scholastic's First Thanksgiving page, you must! 


There are some great webcasts and activities for teachers and students.  Last week, we watched tours of the Pilgrim Village and the Wompanoag Homesite.  We then compared and contrasted the two with this Venn Diagram.


I have shared the file with you if you want to use this sometime during the week.  The webcasts are definitely worth your time.  My students really got into it!  Just click below on the "Click to Download" icon to grab the headers, phrases, and a student copy.  {For some reason, when I open it in google docs, there are some random words and images in there.  I can't figure it out!  It is doing it in both documents I uploaded.  Aaaah!  If you have ever had this problem, can you let me know how to fix it?  Thanks!}




I also made these Thanksgiving words for some activities we are doing this week.  Click the pic below to download those if you think you can use them.
We learned all about long e spelled e, ee, ea, and y last week.  We made these little turkeys inspired by Cara.  I am working on a unit for long e word work, and I am hoping to open a TPT store very soon.  The unit is finished for the most part.  I just need to tweak a few things. 


I hope y'all have a wonderful week and a Happy Thanksgiving!
