Let's Talk Turkey Linky Party

Let's Talk Some Turkey!

I'm joining Gina at Beach Sandand Lesson Plans

When you're done reading my blog, hop on over to hers and link up! Don't be chicken. . . I mean Turkey! It's pretty easy and well, helps to share the love of the season too!

1. One of my favorite things to do is my Thanksgiving Pronouns Activity.
It's a skill needed by 2nd and 3rd graders and only costs $2.00. 
It's easy to copy, laminate, cut and let the kids try to connect the 
pronouns to the proper noun.

And the clipart is made using DJ Inkers clip art & fonts. ©

2. One of my favorite books to read is A Turkey For Thanksgiving by Eve Bunting. 

Who doesn't love anything that she writes!
A Turkey for Thanksgiving

It's so fun to see the surprise look on Turkey's face when he finds out that  he. . . oh wait, I'm not going to give away the punch line!

 You'll just have to read it. 

The pictures are by Diane De Groat. 

She writes the Gilbert Series of books. 
We Gather Together...Now Please Get Lost!
Which brings me to a second book that I love to read at this time of year. 
Gilbert always learns a big lesson in these books. 

The other reason that I love this series is that she has a character in the book named Patty! Isn't that great! Very few authors use that name any more. . . . 
and well, it's just such a lovely name!

Now while you're out blog hopping today, don't forget to stop in at Third Grade Tidbits You'll be able to see what Gina has to say about Talking Turkey!

And if you're still here, you have time to pick up my freebie for you! 

It's an adjective paper to celebrate the season. 

I am grateful for having over 300 followers and today I hit a milestone! I hit the $100.00 mark! That felt so good. Thanks to all of you who have purchased my things. 

You are truly!
