Holiday Recipe Linky Party


DeAnne from First Grade and Fabulous is sharing holiday recipe ideas. I thought I would share one of my salads that I like to bring to Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner.  This recipes is from Taste of Home.  It is quick and easy to make. My kind of recipe. Uses fresh vegetables so it's one of the healthier things at the holiday table.  It also keeps well in the refrigator so you can have left overs as well.

Holiday Punch
Frozen Raspberry concentrate
Frozen Hawaiian Punch concentrate
Frozen Cranberry concentrate
Quart of somewhat softened Raspberry sherbet
Ginger Ale 2 liter bottles chilled

Pour 1/2 of all the concentrates in a bowl (all should be in a liquid state), add raspberry sherbet and pour a 2 liter bottle of ginger ale over the concentrates and sherbet.

(Enough for 1 punch bowl and a refill)
Have a great Thanksgiving!

I am Thankful For Craft

I can't believe it is Nov. already!  Boy has time flown by so far.  Just finished with Parent/Teacher Conferences this past week.  So the students had a 3 day week.  We have off on Monday for Veteran's Day.  (A 4 day week)  Then we have a 2 day week the week of Thanksgiving.  I'm not complaining about having time off because I can use it for sure.  I just can't believe we only have one full week of school this month with so much to do.  Right after Thanksgiving we start our next round of MAP testing.  So the pressure to do well is already building. 

Well here's fun activity to do with your students this month.

Last year I had posted this idea, but it was pretty close to Thanksgiving.  Plus I have many new followers so I thought I would post this idea again. 

Thanksgiving Turkey Craft

With so much emphasis on improving MAP scores in our district we do not have a lot of time to do fun stuff anymore. Everything needs to be learning related so I have incorporated some writing into this.  I have students brainstorm a list of things that they are thankful for. (Not just video games or my mom bought me this etc. . . . ) They write each thing they are thankful for on one of the colored feathers.  

Another idea is to write 4 facts and 4 opinions about turkeys.

To download the turkey pattern for this activity click here.  It will take you to google docs.  If you want to share this document please just share the link with someone.  It is free to anyone that has a link.
If you download this item please leave a comment below.  It's always nice to hear feedback on free items that I share.
