Happy Thanksgiving, 2 New Products, a Freebie, and a Flash Sale!

Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian buddies!
Thanksgiving is not the big holiday that it seems to be in the US but I thought I would get into the festive spirit and throw a flash sale:)  Everything in my TpT store will be 20% off today and tomorrow.

In honour of our buddy the turkey we did a quick little writing activity and craftivity to go with it.  We read the book, "Run, Turkey, Run!" and then talked about Thanksgiving from the Turkey's point of view ~ poor fellow!  I had the kids write 6 good reasons why we should "spare" the turkey and eat something else and then they wrote about what they thought we should eat instead.  It's funny that McDonald's came up a!  You can pick this mini pack up if you're interested.

I am super excited about the other new product I posted last night!  It's called "Sight Words Hide and Seek {Dolch Primer Words}".  I made 11 pages with 21 sight words hidden in each picture.  I gave my kiddos magnifying glasses and they went to town!  They went crazy LOVED this activity!  Boy they were engaged!  It was well worth the price of the magnifying glasses ~ thank you dollar store!  Each of the 52 Dolch Primer words are used at least 5 times in the pack.  I had my kids highlight the word when they found it and then print it in the space at the bottom of the page.  This way they were finding all the words and no words were duplicated.  Then they coloured the picture when they were done.   The graphics are from MelonHeadz {who just opened a TpT store!} and Krista Wallden LOVE!   Here's a peek....

Now since you were so good and actually stuck with me to the very end ~ your freebie!

Have a great Sunday!
