Bell Work

Where’s Thanksgiving?

This is a great activity for beginning spellers. Hide the letters that make up the word Thanksgiving all over the room. Have your kids locate them from their seats. You can have them work in groups or individually. They should write down where each letter is or draw a simple picture to remind themselves.
