This week’s Teacher Tuesday comes from a kindergarten teacher at Mossy Creek Elementary School, in Cleveland, Ga.
We LOVE these two ideas. What a great way to have a little fun in the classroom while still incorporating those all important common core standards. First, we see the kids working on their fine motor skills with tracing and coloring their hands to look like turkeys. Second, this activity also allows the children to be creative. Finally, they review the vowels by making each “feather” one of the vowels.
The second activity is a Thanksgiving twist on an all-time favorite game, BINGO. What teacher doesn’t need a game to break up the day, use as a time filler, or just a fun way to learn sight words?
