Fabulous Thanksgiving Book

I know that it's not even Halloween yet, but I can't wait to share my new Thanksgiving project!  I am SO excited about this unit I whipped up yesterday as I was locked inside for 36 hours thanks to Hurricane Sandy.  We were so fortunate to have power and no significant damage to our house or cars.

My Thankful Book is a book your little ones can make to truly help them understand the meaning of being thankful.  The lesson starts out with generating a class bubble map about things we are thankful for.  Each child can also complete their own individual bubble map.  Then, students complete pages about  things they are thankful for, ranging from family to school to friends to the earth.  There are four fun cover choices so that each little one can personalize their book.  This is a great opportunity to integrate literacy in a meaningful way, as well as an adorable keepsake that parents will adore!

Version 1 is geared toward older or more advanced students.  It has more lines for writing and a smaller space for illustrations.  You find it {HERE} on sale for $2.50.

The second version is geared toward the littler ones.  It has larger lines for writing and a bigger space for pictures.  You can find it {HERE}.

If you need lots of differentiation in your life, you can purchase both together as a bundle unit {HERE} on sale for $4.50.

I hope you like them as much as I do!
  Gobble Gobble!

I will give one copy away (either version 1 or version 2... your choice) to the first person who can tell me the thing they are the most thankful for this year.  Be sure to leave your email address!

**UPDATE**

These word cards and word rings work perfectly with the My Thankful Book.  Here they are in action:




They also come in Spanish!  Click {HERE} to check them out in my TPT store.

I am most thankful for my wonderful family and friends who are always there for me. When I see/hear what some of my students have to go through: even in kinder, I realize every day that I am truly blessed!
