I had all 31 children for the first half hour. We played the "Little Frankie" High-Frequency Word Game and they loved it when the Little Frankie cards came up and they could stomp about.
Then it was time for me to read aloud with them. I chose There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Bat. Here's the picture on the front cover.
Just as I began reading one of the "little darlings" noted that I looked just like the lady in the picture! SERIOUSLY ! I guess I better start thinking about coloring my hair and getting rid of the glasses. But honestly, I wasn't wearing an apron or black shoes.
On to Thanksgiving. I have replicated the Halloween A, B, C and High-Frequency Words Games and now have three new Thanksgiving skill-building games:
- Flap, Flap, Gobble, Gobble A, B, C Game
- Flap, Flap, Gobble, Gobble 1st 50 High-Frequency Words Game
- Flap, Flap, Gobble, Gobble 2nd 50 High Frequency Words Game
I have also finished my 2nd emergent reader packet. The packet focuses on the "at" family.

Here's a November FREEBIE for you: "Farmer Turkey" Number Sequencing. Sequence by 1's, skip count by 2's, 5's and 10's. Just copy, cut along the lines, and laminate each picture strip. The children will sequence the numbers to discover the picture. I also like having them write a story about the picture once they have successfully sequenced the numbers.
