It’s great when a teacher can incorporate holiday-themed activities into lesson plans and have students engaged and interacting. And what better holiday than Thanksgiving and this easy-to-use WATCH & LISTEN resource?
With Thanksgiving around the corner, we have found some engaging Thanksgiving-themed readlouds, that teachers can use in their classrooms. With everything always so busy during the holiday season, teachers sometimes don’t have the extra time to sit on the reading rug to read books out loud, so instead we WATCH & LISTEN. Great for transitioning between lessons, at the end of the school day, or the day before Thanksgiving break. Your kiddos will love them.
