I will never forget (how could I? It happened on more than one occasion!) asking introductory questions about Pilgrims and the Mayflower and getting totally blank stares from my first graders. Aaagh - you know they spent tons of time on this in kindergarten and probably in preschool, too! But, really, there are a whole lot of facts and concepts to be learned in November, to say nothing of vocabulary like cornucopia and veteran! Tough stuff for our little guys!
Here's a set of 5 games and center activities that will help those November words stick! The set includes 33 word cards with suggestions for two activities. There're also 2 board games, a four-in-a-row game, and directions and materials for making a shaker bottle activity. Use these to stock your literacy centers in November and watch those vocabulary words become automatic!

Here's "Turkey Feathers!", your free sample from the set. Google Docs took out some of the background colors but, hey- you'll save some ink! :) Enjoy!
