Happy Friday everyone! Thanksgiving is on its way and we are happy to share our collection of activities for “‘Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving” by Dav Pilkey. Use them at school, use them at home, use them on Thanksgiving!
Let’s start with how we integrated the 5 senses while we read the book!
Feel: We touched soft feathers
See & Hear: We watched real turkeys waddling and gobbling on youtube: Here’s the link! We listened to the real turkey gobble and then practiced “gobbling” like a turkey.
Smell: We smelled some soil when we talked about the kids going to a farm
Taste: Toast & Jam (This is what the kids eat for Thanksgiving dinner at the end of the book)
Below are the links to our activity line up for this fun book. Happy Turkey Day!
