There are 33 student pages included in this product.
ABC ORDER - there are three abc order pages with 8 Fall or Thanksgiving words per page. Dotted lines are provided as a guide for students to write the words. There is also an alphabet printed across the top of each page for students to reference while they work.
HOW TO WRITING - six "how to" writing pages are included. Each page includes sequencing words "first, next, then and last" and includes a picture reference to spark their thinking. How to writing pages include how to carve a pumpkin, how to make leaf rubbings (I suggest you make one with your students and have them write out the steps as you go), how to make a Thanksgiving feast, how to make a pumpkin pie, how to make a turkey craft, and how does an apple grow (apple life cycle).
STORY WRITING - there are four story writing prompt pages. Each story writing page includes a picture, story prompt and starting words such as "One day". Stories include, "My Thanksgiving Traditions", "The Missing Turkey", "The Thanksgiving Parade" and "The First Thanksgiving".
ACROSTIC POEMS - there are five acrostic poem pages included. Each page includes a picture prompt and a word for students to write about. Acrostic poems include the words "turkey", "pilgrim", "leaves", "leaf" and "acorn".
MAKING WORDS ACTIVITIES - there are three making words activities included. Each page includes a picture and letters that students can cut apart to help them make words. Students have to make as many words as they can out of the letters of a given word. The words are "thankful", "pilgrims", "Mayflower", and "November".
SYLLABLE SORT - there are three syllable sort pages. Each page has three words with pictures. Students clap the syllables in the word and match the word to the correct number of syllables. The number is in the form of a number maze so students can have fun making their way through each number maze when they are done!
SIGHT WORD FUN - there are three sight word pages. Students spin a paper clip around a pencil to land on a sight word. They find the matching sight word and color it then write the word on a dotted line. Lastly, they find their way through a fall shaped maze (leaf, turkey or acorn) to get to the sight word at the other end.
LONG VOWEL FIND - there are five long vowel word work pages. Each page has a fun fall shaped (pumpkin pie, corn, turkey or pilgrim hat) picture that is full of words. Students circle all the long vowel words (one for each of the five long vowels) and count up the total number they found.
