I have finished updating my Thanksgiving products from last year, and boy does it feel good! I’ve come a long way since I opened my Teachers pay Teachers store just over a year ago. These products now have improved graphics and fonts, and they feel just like brand new products for me! I also added a brand NEW Thanksgiving product. am so excited to share!
First, I’ll share my brand NEW product- Thanksgiving Punny Cards. This isn’t a revised product- it was just barely added to my store. These cards are perfect to give to your students and coworkers. You can give the cards by themselves, or with a related item! Check out these fun ideas:
- Hope you have a “SWEET” Thanksgiving- Include any sweet treat!
- This may be “CORN”y. I’m thankful for you- Candy corn or popcorn
- I can’t be-“LEAF” how amazing you are!- This could be fun for students to give to their parents along with a craft using silk craft leaves so their creation will last!
- I hope you are “PUMP”ed for Thanksgiving-
- Have a wonderful fall “BREAK”– any candy bar! Get bulk deals for your class here.
- Being your teacher is as good as “PIE!”– Share some pie with your class, or give a coworker a full pie or gift card to Village Inn (or similar restaurant).
My first revised product from last year is Fractions are Easy as Pie! With these engaging Thanksgiving fraction worksheets, students will be able to identify fractions, draw fractions, and solve story problems using fractions and a picture graph. Fraction vocabulary cards are included for the words Fraction, Numerator and Denominator.
This also includes an exciting opening activity using treats to get the students hooked. Students will circle whether they want 1/2, 1/3 or 1/4 of a treat. While they are doing the worksheets, you can prepare the treats and give each student the amount they requested. This memorable lesson will help students remember that the bigger the denominator is on the bottom, the smaller each piece of the whole is!
It also includes worksheets for students to identify fractions and draw fractions. Finally, it includes a section with critical thinking questions. Students will use fractions AND a picture graph for these!
The teacher answer key is also included. This product is very versatile! The “pie” theme is perfect for Thanksgiving or Pi Day, but it can also be used at any time. I mean, when is pie ever NOT a good idea? 😉 You can get this product at my Teachers pay Teachers store here. You can also get it in a bundle with the next product (keep reading)…
My next product revision for Thanksgiving is Turkey Fraction Trivia. This is a really fun fraction game. It is similar to the style of Jeopardy- except the questions and answers are not backwards.
It is a printable game, so you can print out the pages on cardstock or laminate them so they will last. You will set up the board as seen above.
You’ll put the number of points on top, and then the question page underneath it. I printed the question and answer back to back so I could just flip the page!
You can get Turkey Fraction Trivia in my TpT store here! You can also get it in my Thanksgiving Fractions Bundle. This bundle includes Fractions are Easy as Pie and Turkey Fraction Trivia. You’ll save 20% if you purchase both products in the bundle!
If you have older students, you may also enjoy my next Pie-themed math product! Area and Circumference are Easy as Pie is a great pie-themed geometry product about finding the area and circumference of circles.
Students will find the area and circumference of “pies” and answer critical thinking questions. These are aligned to the standards so your students will use higher level thinking skills!
You can find Area and Circumference are Easy as Pie in my Teachers pay Teachers store here! This product is great not only for Thanksgiving, but also pie day or anytime! It is versatile, just like the fractions version above. 🙂
