UPDATE: I have expanded my materials on this book to include so many materials: vocabulary, rhymes, story comprehension, story map, story retell rubric, etc.
Check out this new blog post describing what I created!
Thanks to certain blogging friends, I was able to check out a few new Thanksgiving books this year. Although I still haven’t found a fantastic one about the original Thanksgiving feast, this rhyming picture book has been fun new one to read and explore with my students.

I never had time to come up with fantastic wh- questions, idioms, or fill-in the rhymes. But I did develop a vocabulary list that includes definitions, synonyms, and (most importantly) picture cues. Many of my students find these pictures crucial to remembering what a word means and can conjure up the memory of the picture much easier than the definition of the word.
