Let's Talk Turkey Linky Party!

This Thanksgiving I am so thankful for my new bloggy friends so....I'm hosting my first Linky Party! 
Here goes...

My favorite Turkey Day activity is TURKEY TWEETS!  The kids get a chance to write Twitter tweets from the perspective of the turkey! The challenge is saying what you need to say in 140 characters or less!

My most favorite read aloud is Eating the Plates. This book gives students a good understanding of the trip on the Mayflower. (They can't believe that the Pilgrims had to eat at night so they didn't see the bugs in their food!) You will also read about life for the Pilgrims in the New World. (They really did "eat the plates" after a meal!) Don't be afraid of the size...you can skip to the parts you want to read. You don't need to read the entire book!

Another favorite is Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving! A fun story about how 8 little children on a field trip to the turkey farm save the turkeys from Farmer Mack Nugget! Hilarious!

Now it's your turn! Read on for the "rules" of this linky party! HAVE FUN!


  1. Hi Gina,
    Thanks for finding me at my blog and thanks for the kind words! I actually taught 3rd grade for the last 8 years and this is my first year in 1st grade. I LOVE 3rd grade!!! I love my little kiddos this year too, but I'm still adjusting everyday since it is so different. It's fun to change things up every once in a while! Thanks also for the invite to the linky party. Unfortunately I haven't had a chance to finalize any of my Thanksgiving ideas into products yet, so I will have to pass on this one. I'd love if you kept me in mind for future linky parties. I still don't fully understand them, but I'm learning :)

    Thanks again! I'll be seeing you around since I'm your newest follower too :)
