Turkey Trot - 1st Grade Freebies & Fun


Welcome to “The Chalkies” Turkey Trot! We hope you enjoy a jog through our blogs gobbling up freebies, ideas, and recipes for some holiday joy!

We have a new blog name!  We switched out the word "Primary" for "Elementary". We want to meet the needs of any teacher K-6. Our blog has been thoughtfully designed to help you find what YOU need for YOUR classroom level!

I love those grade level tabs {seen above} that help me grab what I need. This trot will also take you through the grade level blogs of your choice.

We hope you enjoy this little meal from appetizer to dessert!

You might also like this Vowel Song Freebie...sung to the tune of "Deck the Halls!"

Timely for the holidays is The Vowel Song, sung to the tune of Deck the Halls. It's a little tricky to pace the syllables, so practicing the words to the tune ahead of time is highly recommended. Hee Hee! Thanks, Kim Geswein, for the font! Click the pic to download.

Having students be able to set and articulate their goals is so important to me. One of the ways I've helped them set goals is by using our learning targets. Here's an example...

You can see that the page I had students highlight mimics our Learning Target board, which is based on our Reading Workshop mini-lessons.

This student is selecting the goal, "I can warm up before reading....bcas I nevr do ti." Which, for him, was true! He'd go straight into reading new texts without that warm up, then get tripped up on tricky words. It was a GREAT goal for him!

You can read more about this kind of goal setting by clicking {right here}.

Seriously the BEST and EASIEST gravy recipe!!! 

Why scramble at the end when you can make this ahead of time - which is delicious....but then make it even more amazing by adding the turkey drippings to your already re-heated gravy??? 

It is seriously my FAVORITE part of the Thanksgiving meal! Just click the photo above to upload the recipe.
