Thanks to Hurricane Sandy, I had the day off!  I decided to be SUPER productive and create my first centers unit.  This Thanksgiving themed centers unit contains 5 activities...

Counting Turkey Feathers:
Your students will choose cards containing a variety of addition sentences. They will group the problems according to the sums, then record them on the worksheet provided.

Thanksgiving Sentence Scramble:
Students will sort the cards depending on the picture.  Once sorted, the students must unscramble the words to form a Thanksgiving sentence.  When completed, they will record the sentence on the worksheet provided, and illustrate their work.

Thanksgiving ABC Order:
There are 8 cards containing different Thanksgiving themed words.  The cards must be put in order, then recorded on the worksheet and illustrated.

What's Missing?:
In this game, students will draw cards containing 2 letters of the alphabet and a missing letter.  They must first determine which letter is missing, then record it onto their worksheet.

Up Your Game:
Students will play this game in groups of 2 or 3.  They will each draw a card from the pile.  Whoever has the highest card may keep all of them.  Keep playing until there are no more cards in the pile.  The winner is the one with the most cards.

I hope you find these activities useful in your classroom - my students LOVE playing them!!
