I almost forgot Thanksgiving, eh!

Well, I'm feeling a little silly:) I was so eager to start my fire safety unit that I TOTALLY forgot that next weekend is Thanksgiving here in Canada! So this week is all about turkeys and fire safety will be the week after.

I always like to teach the children this little sing-song turkey poem. Sometimes we perform it in front of the school, but not this year! Duh!

You can click here to grab both copies. The first one...
I project onto my Smart Board and the second one is a handout at the end of the week. The kids fill in the missing words, illustrate and pop it into their poetry duotangs for "just right" reading.

A Plump and Perky Turkey is always a fun book to read :)

And although I haven't read this Dav Pilky book, it's on my wish list. I mean, he is such a funny guy!

Before I go ... guess what???? Our grandson was born yesterday!!!! 6 lbs. 12 oz. of gorgeous baby boy. I'm sure you can guess how crazy excited we are!!

Have a great week!

  3. Barb, I can't tell you how excited I was to see the Mr. Turkey song/poem. I've always done that when I taught. I can't wait to hear the kids recite it.

    I'm so glad to hear your grandson is here. Congratulations :)
