Once again, a fantastic packet that we used for our last day of school before Thanksgiving party day. So many fun activities that span all the ages of my school age kids right now (Pre-K, 2nd & 4th grades). Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE this site and I think this is the most amazing value for my money!
Another amazing creation from all of you at 'Teaching Packs! Lots of well thought out resources. I think the video is a perfect length and a great balance of written information and visuals - very inspiring for children of all ages & will certainly grab their attention. An excellent addition to this pack especially with the comprehension!
What a terrific Pack! For anyone celebrating or teaching Thnaksgiving at school, this is just what we need. The Guide, as usual, is thoroughly informative. There are some lovely arts and crafts activities, including the Turkey Split Pin Puppet; the game is well-made and fun; and I am especially impressed with the video - it's really well made, and has a lovely comprehension to go with it.
