Fun Thanksgiving Kindergarten Math Project

This is my first year of homeschooling, and I am really enjoying it. My daughter is in Kindergarten. Our current curriculum (Sonlight) is very literature based, with lots of reading aloud by me. Many of the books are Usborne books, which I have fallen in love with. Usborne also has a website that offers many links to fun activities to go along with what we are learning in history or science.

I have decided that the internet, Google and a printer are a homeschooling mom’s best friend. There are so many resources available, many of them free. I also have a few blogs that I follow, written by other homeschool moms, that have been a source of valuable information and fun ideas. Almost every day we have incorporated a worksheet, color sheet or something else I find online to supplement, review or expand upon what we are learning in our actual school books.

Today, my daughter did this fun turkey math project. (At least I thought it was fun!) I found the turkey and the feathers online at File Folder Fun (free), printed them out and cut out all the feathers last night. Each turkey had a number on it. Each feather had a math problem. She had to glue each feather to the appropriate turkey which contained the correct number/answer to the math problem on the feather. And isn’t it fun that it is a turkey since Thanksgiving is coming up? Thank you, internet!

Okay, so this picture doesn’t have anything to do with the fun turkey math project, I just liked her cool hat that she made at her homeschool enrichment class on Tuesday.
