I made holiday tree themed days of the week and months of the year strips that can be used in pocket charts or in your calendar centers. We also do sequencing and matching with them. Just print ... cut ... and laminate. You can find the patterns here.
I have posted December's Number Tracing Calendar and Calendar Numbers along with other December items to my free printables page (if you do not see them at the bottom of the page please refresh your browser).
For the first time ever I have made all of the material from all 63 of my cds available in a massive download collection. There are nine bundled downloads in my black friday special plus access to the member's area for 30 days.
some of the included activities:
The special is available until midnight Tuesday December 1st. If you get a chance please check it out!!
Every time I am in a store that sells paint I grab a couple of paint chip samples and save them for when we do activities with paint chips. This week we made made turkeys with them.
To make the paint chip turkeys you will need to have:
colored cardstock paper
The children start by cutting a turkey body out of brown cardstock or construction paper. Next they cut feather shapes from the paint chip samples and glue them on to the back of the turkey body.
Children can decide what colors and how many of the paint chips to use. They then cut a beak ... gobbler and feet from cardstock paper and glue on the turkey body. The last step is to glue on the wiggle eyes. If you do not want to use wiggle eyes you can also make construction paper eyes.

The free membership printable this week is pilgrim number sequencing activity which is great for number recognition and review. I printed all the patterns on cardstock paper and cut them out. I then attached them to craft sticks and set them in a clear plastic cup.
In this activity children put the pilgrim sticks in numerical order. You can also make a number match by making two copies and have children place the second set of pilgrims on top of the first set that has been put in order. You can grab the patterns for free until Sunday November 22nd ... after that they will only be available in the member's section which is where the turkey number match is also located.
Here is a wonderful project for fine motor development that goes great with a turkey or Thanksgiving theme. You will need colored cardstock paper ... scissors ... glue/glue sticks ... sequins ... and wiggle eyes.
Children cut a turkey body shape out of brown cardstock paper. Next they cut five turkey feathers from five different colors of cardstock paper and glued them onto the turkey body. They glued on wiggle eyes and cut a beak and gobbler from from orange and red cardstock paper. They then cut turkey legs from yellow cardstock paper and glued them on together with the beak and gobbler. The last step was to apply glue drops to turkey and press on the sequins.
