Thanksgiving Freebies!!!

It's been a while since my last post. I don't usually post unless I have something exciting to say or some Freebies to share. Lucky for you, I have a load of Freebies to share! 
In my classroom, we've been busy finishing up our first unit of writing called "Small Moments". This is a unit from Lucy Calkins' newest writing units. These are slightly similar to her older set, but the units have a changed a bit. The best part is they are all aligned to the Common Core Standards. I created some "fancy" publishing paper for my students, and that's the first freebie. There are slight variations of the paper to meet your students' needs. Just click on the image below to get the paper for FREE! 

We've also been learning/discussing base words (mainly verbs/action words) and endings (-s, -ing, -ed). We made a large classroom anchor chart, then we played "I Have/Who Has?". This is the first time we played it this year, and I was surprised how quickly my students picked up on it. Our science teacher used her own version of it this week too, and she said the kids really enjoyed it. You can get that FREEBIE by clicking on the image below:

Last, but not least, are some Thanksgiving related graphic organizers that focus on learning about Pilgrim children. We read 

Both books are fantastic for teaching what life was really like as a Pilgrim child. My students loved these books, and were amazed at how hard the Pilgrim children had to work. After reading these books, we created a tree map on a large chart paper to show what we learned about Pilgrim children. We also compared ourselves to a Pilgrim boy and girl. Click on the image below to get all of these graphic organizers for free. They won't be free for long, so hurry up! And, as always, if you leave feedback, please don't mention that you downloaded any of these for free. In the future, they won't be free, and that can upset buyers. Thanks!!!
