I created this with a little help from google (for the pics of cranberries and waves) and from DJ Inkers. Click here to download. :)

I purchased Deanna's Thanksgiving unit from TPT and incorporated the chores page. Her unit it totally cute. My students really enjoyed her story.
We also did something different this year with cranberries!!!!
The kids just loved it. We first looked at one and wrote some adjectives.
Then we made cranberry sauce!
|Our pumpkin. I had 3 donated to our class. We carved one, added stickers to this one, and the other we counted the seeds and measure how many cubes tall it was.|
|This is our pumpkin tree map that we filled out together.|
|We used the tree map to write about pumpkins. They did a great job.|

|I saw this on another blog, Welcome to Room 36, but Jessica did it with apples. I changed it to pumpkins and we measured our selves and compared our results.|
|I also saw this brace map too and decided to try it with my kinders. We did it step by step together and they turned out super!|

We included a living and nonliving unit this year about bears. We talked about real bears and teddy bears. We even ended the week bringing in bears and reading in our caves. (under our tables).
|Sorting our bears.|
|Comparing bears and teddy bears|
|I saw this on Mrs. Lee's blog and thought hey - why not label the bears parts. Then I had the kids do it in their science notebook.|
