Gobble, Gobble: New November Calendar
Can you believe it’s almost November? If you can’t wait for Turkey Day, get ready with zany holidays and activities on our new November math activity calendar. We’re kicking off this month with turkey jokes and fun math activities!
Asked to write a composition entitled, “What I’m thankful for on Thanksgiving,” little Timothy wrote, “I am thankful that I’m not a turkey.”
Q: Why did the turkey cross the road?
A: It was the chicken’s day off.
Q: Why was the turkey sent to the Principal’s office?
A: He used fowl language!
Turkey math activities
There’s never a holiday from learning! If you’re a math teacher or parent, cook up some educational Thanksgiving activities and math games. Let your kids help you with recipes. Teach them how to measure and have them count out silverware for the guests. If they’re older, ask them to calculate how many pounds of turkey you will need for Thanksgiving dinner. Or have them list their favorite foods: turkey, pumpkin pie, stuffing, and come up with a budget for groceries. Then, give them pretend money and see if they could shop and stay within budget.
Download our free November calendar and fill the month with a cornucopia of cool kids activities.
