Hi all! Hope you're having a great start to the week. Our week has been filled with assessment after assessment and we're almost done! Amongst all of our assessing we've found time to also incorporate some First Thanksgiving activities and since we just LOVE freebies ourselves, we thought we'd share a few freebies with you all!
Here's a little fill in the blank First Thanksgiving mini book that we created. It incorporates facts about The First Thanksgiving in a format easy for first graders to follow. We also included a word search that includes the words used to fill in the blanks.

We've read several Thanksgiving books, and have also incorporated Scholastic's online First Thanksgiving interactive videos and tools which we LOVE! Tomorrow we're ending out First Thanksgiving unit and we'll be making these books with our kiddos!
Another freebie that we'd love to share with you all is our Reading Focus Wall labels. Our new reading program, Treasures, encourages creating a focus wall. We've now added this to our reading instruction and are really loving it! Each week, we change the cards below the labels to match the weekly focus. This focus wall provides our kiddos with our weekly focus and we refer to it often throughout our while group lessons. We hang ours right next to our SMART Boards so they are easily accessible and our first graders can constantly view it.
If you'd like a copy of our labels, just click the picture below!
We wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving!
We are looking forward to spending some much needed family time with our kids and families. We'll be back in a few days with some new products and freebies!
