Happy Schedulin’ Sunday! This week is all about Thanksgiving Turkeys and decomposing numbers and making 5!
And as always you can download my lesson plans by clicking the image below!
The ‘staches will be using my Thanksgiving Research Creation to learn about turkeys and Thanksgiving.
We will start off with our schema map by recording our schema about turkeys. The ‘staches will add to the schema map all week long as we learn about Thanksgiving turkeys!
We will do a tree map about turkeys!
Then we will label a turkey!
Each student will do these adorable turkeys from Cara Carroll at The First Grade Parade!
Sight Word Turkeys! We make these adorable turkeys to assess our sight words! I love this project because it’s such a cute assessment that’s fun for the kids but it also helps them see how important our sight words are. We talk about how we are thankful for the words we read!
These turkeys are available in my Gobble Gobble creation!
We will also make our infamous paper plate turkeys! These guys are so famous that they have been featured on Yahoo.com!
This week we introduce decomposing numbers and making numbers to 5. Start by using red and yellow counters to make 5. Do this whole group using large red and yellow counters made from craft foam!
We then do some independent practice!

After we practice making 5, we introduce number bonds! We do giant number bonds on the floor whole group practice. And then we use our giant paper number bonds for independent practice!
We are also continuing with word family bootcamp! This week we’re learning IG and IP words! We will make circle maps then we build words. Finally we write word family words!
For Foodie Fun Friday we’re eating turkey claws (candy corn) and turkey droppings (Reese’s Pieces)! For Mad Science this week we’re making butter! We’ll talk about liquids and solids and then we will make our own butter and eat it on bread!
And that’s our week!!!!
