Thankful for Thanksgiving

I don't know about you, but I am soooooo ready for a long break.  I love my job, but I do find I need time to refresh so that I can be lively and ready for all the smiling faces that walk through the Media Center doors.  That's why I am so thankful for our week long Thanksgiving break.

And because I am in a thankful mood, I thought I'd share some of my Thanksgiving freebies with you.


This week, I've been reading 'Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving by Dav Pilkey. This is one of my favorites.  I read it every year. This year I decided to use it to reinforce the story elements of characters and setting.

I made up this fun little worksheet for the kiddos to complete while they wait their turn for checkout. You can get a copy of it here or by clicking on the picture above.


Kindergarten kiddos love this fun Turkey Trot alphabet practice sheet, too.  You can get here free in my TpT store or by clicking on the picture above.


If you are doing any creative writing with your students, you might enjoy these freebies.  One is a story starter about Thanksgiving.  You can get it here on my TpT store or by clicking on the picture above.


And this one a fun writing paper to use to write a persuasive essay about why you shouldn't eat turkey on Thanksgiving.  You can get it here in my TpT store or by clicking on the picture above.


And of course, you know I have made some Thanksgiving bookmarks.  You can get a set of 4 free bookmarks (2 color, 2 b/w) from my TpT store by clicking here or on the picture above.


If you prefer a larger set, you can get a set of 16 for $2.00 in my TpT store by clicking here or on the picture above.

I also have a fun Happy Thanksgiving banner in my TpT for $2.00.  You can get it by clicking here or on the picture above.

I hope you have a wonderful, restful holiday. Happy Turkey Day!

  1. Your timing was perfect. I was dreading my first grade classes today---now I have an activity to keep them busy during checkout and a new activity to use with my kindergarten classes next year.
    Thanks for sharing so freely.
