Literacy Snack Idea Thanksgiving + Free Printable
We’re down to our last few days before Thanksgiving break and we’re getting excited! This week we’re reading an all time classic, A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving by Charles Schultz.
“When Peppermint Patty invites herself (and most of her friends) to Charlie Brown’s house for Thanksgiving dinner, Charlie Brown reluctantly agrees to make a holiday feast even though he can barely make toast and cold cereal! Can he pull together a memorable meal, or will he and his friends just be grateful when it’s over?”
In the book, Snoopy makes a Thanksgiving “feast” that’s not your typical Thanksgiving dinner. For our snack this week, we’re having some of the items that Snoopy made.
each student needs
one slice of bread
a little butter for the toast
a small handful of jelly beans
small handful of popcorn
There’s not much to do for this weeks snack, besides making the toast. It’s a great opportunity to help teacher the kids safety around kitchen appliances. Each student will make a piece of toast and put some butter on it. They’ll each get a small amount of popcorn and jellybeans to go with. Such a fun and silly treat to go along with the book.
While the kids are enjoying their snack, I made a free printable for them to work on. They’ll be able to draw all their favorite foods for Thanksgiving.
