Thankful hats, freebies and polka dots!!

Tomorrow is Friday…which is one day closer to the weekend….which is EVEN closer to that special day of endless amounts of FOOD and family time!! I LOVE Thanksgiving time! Tuesday evening, we had our small group {our Bible study group} Thanksgiving dinner and friends….seriously why is food so dern good?!? A.D.D totally set in after I ate my way through tons of carbs and butter. :)

ok..’nuff about food before I find myself sneaking into the kitchen for cookies and milk!

Today, to kick into that Thankful spirit we made these little Thankful Turkey Hats. I used my turkey template from my Writing Through the Year unit, added a paper plate and we’ve got a super duper easy hat!

To make the hat, just cut a slit in the back straight up to where the inner circle of the plate starts, cut along the inner circle, and leave a few inches of the circle uncut. This will be the part that flips up {the part with the turkey face}.

When the hat is worn,  the turkey will stand up like so…

Easy peasy!

We also threw in some synonym fun earlier this week. Thank you Cara Carroll!

If you read my previous post, you have seen that we have been working super hard with fact families and antonyms. Tomorrow, my little loves will complete these pages for a little independent assessment. Quick and simple.
