Fistful of Drawing Lessons for Thanksgiving

Dear Teaching Friends,

My apologies to all of you - I totally forgot to post Fistful of Freebies last week! Actually, I sort of thought of it, but between the hurricane and power outage, I just couldn't seem to get it together and find the time to research the freebies! Then last Friday morning, our daughter, son-and-law and their 3 little sweeties (under the age of 5!) moved in with us because they still had no power, no heat, and temps dipping into the low 40's at night! It was a delight and great fun to have them with us until they headed home to their own warm house this morning. There is nothing that compares with having your sleepy little grandkids hop into your bed for a snuggle and a story in the morning! Even at 6:00 a.m.
Yes, I'll admit I'm exhausted today. Happy, but exhausted.

In any case, I decided to throw in an extra on this week's "fistful" to make up for last week! The freebies are focused on drawing lessons, since many of you seemed to be interested in them from my post on the drawing/writing connection  and "how to draw" pinterest board.

I hope you'll enjoy using them to jumpstart your Thanksgiving writing projects.




Cindy, a.k.a. KinderKay has a number of great drawing and writing packets in her TPT store. Don't miss her free Thanksgiving Turkey packet! It includes visual directions for a draw-and-cut turkey, word cards, story starters, and 3 levels of writing activities.

Activity Village is a terrific source for drawing lessons! Here are a few for Thanksgiving.

Finally, here's an easy turkey step-by-step that would be perfect to print as a following directions activity for a center.
