**Click PREVIEW for real images of activities in action!**
8 Word Cards (in color and black and white) – cut and laminate these cards. You may want 2 sets printed depending on how many students will be using them at once. They use them for most all of the activities.
***words included in this set focus on Thanksgiving Foods and are: pumpkin pie, cornucopia, pumpkin, turkey, corn, potatoes, cranberries, roll
Write It! Strips– cut and laminate these cards. Provide a dry erase marker for kids to write the words on (using the word cards for help)
** You can also print the black and white copies and print them back to back as additional recording sheets.
Write It! worksheet– Use as a recording sheet for the center, where the kids can copy the words onto the sheet. You can also use as a “write the room” option by hanging the word cards around and having the kids go and find/copy them down.
Trace and Paste– Work on writing and cutting too! Kids trace the words and then cut/paste their matching picture next to them (using the word cards to help them if needed).
Write It! Book – Print the book double sided, cut in half and staple to instantly have 2 copies! Leave at the center for kids to label the pictures (using the word cards provided). When they are finished labeling they color the pictures.
***For an extra challenge, try having them label the book without the word cards, using phonetic spelling.
Writing Prompts – Print and provide copies of the writing prompts for kids to write stories about. For example, on the page with a rainbow they may write “I saw a pretty rainbow today outside.” using phonetic spelling with the exception of the word “rainbow”, which is provided for them. ***There is also a writing book option with a cover. Print them back to back with the cover and they have a themed writing book!
