I am not rushing the holidays but I wanted to push out a companion pack for those that like to plan ahead! I apologize for not creating a storybook companion for Halloween!! I promise to get a few out next year!! To make up for it, I have one ready to go for Thanksgiving!!
Activities to use with the book, “’Twas The Night Before Thanksgiving” by Dav Plikey.
Addresses the following skills:
-higher level thinking
In this activity:
-Comprehension Questions Board Game: Students must accurately respond to the questions on the cards provided in order to take a turn using a dice/spinner to move around the game board. Answer key is provided.
-Sequencing Cards: Students must read the sentences provided and arrange them into the correct order of events from the story.
-Vocabulary Matching: Use the cards to drill and play memory matching games to build vocabulary using words from the story. I recommend doing this activity BEFORE reading so students will understand the vocabulary as they read. Also great for working on synonyms!
-Adjective Sort: Students can sort the adjectives from the story into the categories (good vs. bad).
-Draw & Write: Several worksheets are provided to elicit imagination and higher level thinking. I recommend having students share their answers/drawings to elicit conversation/discussion.
