Google+ Mom to 2 Posh Lil Divas: Big Fat Turkey Learning Fun for Thanksgiving

Big Fat Turkey Learning Fun for Thanksgiving

Sneaking learning into our crafting and fun has become a hobby of mine :)

Word Family Turkeys

I made some simple turkey body cut outs & 
construction paper feathers in various colors.

I picked a few simple word families - et, en, at, all and ig
& let the Oldest Diva come up with 5 words to fit each word family.

Here's what she came up with: 

She did this activity almost entirely on her own while I made dinner.
I love how much better she is getting with her spelling, especially of cvc words,  and how much her confidence has increased lately with both reading and writing.

Now, let's do the
  Turkey Number Hop!

I found this turkey template online and now can't find it again to share (sorry!).
I wrote numbers 10-20 to give the Littlest Diva some number recognition practice.

I mixed them up and taped them to the floor in a circle.

The Oldest Diva decided she wanted to be the teacher for this activity.
She called out a number (from 10-20) and the Littlest Diva  had to hop to the correct number from her "home" spot in the middle of the circle.

Fun & Learning for both my Lil Divas!
