Thanksgiving Fun

 Holly and I have really enjoyed making close reads for our kids. We use these as our text for reading and writing in addition to trade books and internet research. We give the kids highlighters and as they read, we ask the questions that correspond to each number. They highlight the answers. The kids really like this method.

Turkey Trot

My intervention segment  focuses on math remediation for a small group of students. They love this game! They play over and over. I change the graphics and problems. Students roll a die, move spaces and answer the question. They mark off the candy corn with the answer. If they land on a corn, they can pick any number to cross off. The winner is the LAST person to color in an answer. This keeps them all in the game to the end. I love the plastic pockets from Target's dollar rack. They use a dry erase marker to mark off.

My Cute is a great place to find free graphics....
