Disguise a Turkey and Another Freebie

My grade level participated in the "Disguise a Turkey" activity this year. It was h-i-l-a-r-i-o-u-s to see some of the ideas the kids and their parents came up with!! We just sent a note and a blank turkey home with each student. Here are a few honorable mentions:
Gotta love the hairy chest!!

Blurry, but you get the idea.

My favorite one! A KISS turkey!!! Bahahahaha!

A sweet little Christmas tree! :)

Da-na-na-na-na-na-na-na Batman!!

Silly clown! :P

I am diggin' the dress!

And I know that it is past Thanksgiving, but feel free to download this Thanksgiving activity we did and file it away for next year! The cute turkey is from Lettering Delights. Click on the image to download the document.

MORE Writing Freebies!

Happy Saturday evening!!

I hope you had a chance to comment and win a FREE copy of my Magic e Activity Pack! If not, click here to head on over to the post.

Speaking of free, I have some freebie writing activities to share with you. You may recall this Finger Spacing Sort I posted a few months ago. Well, I created one just like it when we introduced capital letters at the beginning of sentences. It was a nice and quick assessment of their understanding. Grab your copy below!

Also, I made a Personal Word Wall to go into our Writer's Notebooks. The students will add names and other words that they frequently use. It serves as a quick reference for them. (My students were very excited about this, by the way! So excited that we now have to go back and reinforce the importance of spelling the words correctly when you add them to the page!) :) You can grab a copy of this as well! It is meant to be copied front-to-back and then hole-punched, so I adjusted the margins accordingly.

Oh, and don't forget about the TN sale and the TPT sale!! You can save all sorts of money! And my shops are both 20% off! :)

Magic e Activity Pack!

Well, it has been a month since my last post. In this past month, I have logged into Blogger maybe 4 or 5 times. The other day I actually visited a few blogs and even left comments!! I am finally into the swing of things at school BUT I have packed one house and moved into another in the last 2 months!! What a not-so pleasant experience!!!!

Anyway, I was struck with inspiration last night and went with it! I created a NEW pack that has NOTHING to do with math! {insert sounds of shock and awe here} I have actually created a Magic e Activity Pack!! I am REALLY loving teaching phonics and have all sorts of ideas for products to create. I hope you enjoy this first one.

It includes:
-word slider
-mystery picture coloring page
-magic e mat
