I Am Not a Turkey!

Good Morning!
     Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays and because it's part of our Social Studies curriculum, I try to squeeze as many math and literacy activities as possible into the weeks leading up to it.  Some of my earliest TPT listings are Thanksgiving activities and looking back at them, I've decided to update some of them.  (I'm also almost ready to post my new Thanksgiving Unit and I would love some proofreaders - see note below.) One of my most popular products is my "I Am Not a Turkey" emergent reader which is a great companion to the famous, "Turkey in Disguise" project.  I've just updated it to follow the format of the new emergent readers that I've been obsessed with making for my class. (Grab the Fall is Here freebie from an earlier post.)  Now there is the matching b/w student version, pocket chart pictures and three student worksheets in addition to the original large, full-color shared reading version. If you have purchased this emergent reader in the past, you are entitled to a free download of the new version - so hop over to TPT and grab your new, improved version!

Note: I'm looking for 2-3 people to proofread my new Thanksgiving Unit before I post it later today. If you have time to look at it in the next hour or so and get back to me with any thoughts or suggestions before 3:00ish, I'll send you the unit for free in exchange for your help.  Just send me a quick email if you can help me out - Thanks!

Thanks to everyone who offered to proofread for me - it's great to have such helpful readers!  Stay tuned this week for some freebies from the new unit!
Have a great night!
