Lots of Thanksgiving Ideas for the primary classroom (K to 2). Roll a Feather math game, Patterned Turkey art, Turkey Bump, Thankful Turkey booklets and MORE! All except one activity is FREE.

I’m almost an old lady.
Gack! Did I just say that out loud?
I only feel about 32 years old but in the real world ~ the one where everyone insists on keeping track ~ I’m quite a bit past that young and lovely age.
Why am I telling you this?
Because I have a secret crush on all things kawaii (meaning “cute” in Japanese popular culture). Specifically, I just love the little animals and fruits and veggies with those sweet little faces. I’ve never admitted this to anyone because it just seems so out of character with my age, even my “in my head age of 32”.
But folks, I’m coming clean. I LOVE kawaii art and I LOVE Halloween so I’ve put them together with this package of kawaii Halloween clipart.
Just looking at those cute little faces makes me smile.
My husband’s favourite is the candy corn, but I’m really digging the bats, especially the girl bat.

I love using poems in my classroom. Not only are they lots of fun but they're perfect for choral and repeated readings.

We learn one poem a week. We read it several times a day with different voices and at different speeds. I often print the poems on cards and we mix up the words. We almost always make up actions to go with them.
