Happy Thanksgiving…. grab some Freebies!

Hi friends!  I’m excited for a restful Thanksgiving!  So many things to be thankful for!  My blogging & TpT  friends are at the top of that list along with my family and friends! 
This is a little late, but maybe you can use it next year! 😉
We did  hand print turkeys!  There is a super cute poem that goes along with it.  Click the picture below to grab the freebie!
Last week during writing we started our story booklets!  So simple, but the kids loved them!  They got to write and illustrate their own books.  We focused on the same book title the first time, “our classroom.”  The kids wrote 1-2 sentences for each page in their book and illustrated pictures for each page as well.  I since then placed story booklets into their Daily 5 writing folders.  The kids have been writing excellent stories; “all about animals,” “my family.” etc.  You can see examples of their work below!  Click the picture of the front cover to grab your freebie!
Also, this week we got to do another fabulous listening comprehension activity!  I posted about this a few weeks ago.   You can click {here} to view the original post!  Basically, I want my students to build their listening comprehension…but have fun while doing it!  I chose the popular story Rainbow Fish.  It is a free listen on the website called storylineonline.  I wanted to choose known text to begin with and then transition to more unknown text.  You can see below their drawings of what they heard during the story.  The first time through I simply played the audio and they made mental images.  Next, they went to their seats and drew what they heard.  Lastly, they came back to the carpet and we watched the video..comparing what we heard and what we saw!
