Thanksgiving Freebie....and a Teacher Confession

Yikes!  We only have 6 school days until Thanksgiving Break!  There are too many cute Thanksgiving activities to get done in 6 days!
I started creating my Totally Turkey Math Unit before Halloween.......and kind of got distracted.  I am a little sad since I had some great ideas and fabulous new Thanksgiving clip art.  Since now you will only have a few days to use the activities, I decided to publish what I have, make it a mini unit and make it FREE!
There are Roll and Colors, Skip Counting pages, and an Addition and Subtraction Sort.  Like I said...MINI unit!
Click the cute turkey below to head on over to my TPT store to grab it for free!  Just leave me some feedback here or on TPT.

Now for my teacher confession!  
Did you know there was a NEW JUNIE B. book?  Yup, it is a Thanksgiving one.  I found it in August and have been sooooo excited to read it to my class.  I didn't read it ahead of time, which has made my daily read aloud a little different.  Like most first grade teachers, I basically have all of the Junie B.'s memorized and have certain voices for each character.  This time, I am cracking up right along with the kids because I don't know whats going to happen next.  I am loving it!
Well, last Thursday I had a sub in the afternoon for my grade level's PLC time.  This means my sub GOT TO READ A CHAPTER OF THE NEW JUNIE B. BOOK....I reluctantly put it in my sub plans.  Then the sub walked in.  I just couldn't do it.  I quick pulled a scarecrow book off my fall shelf and said, "Here read this instead of Junie. B."  And might have hid the Junie B. book behind a math tub.  

Do any of you insist on doing certain activities with your class or am I a crazy control freak of a teacher?   


  1. We did your roll and covers from the free Thanksgiving unit today. I even got a picture of one of them working on it. I'll put a link here if you want to check it out. I really appreciated how you gave us so many different options as far as games go. It may be a mini unit but there was a lot of great stuff in it. Thanks again.

  2. Thanks for the feedback! I would LOVE to see the pictures!!!
