March 4 is National Grammar Day!

National Grammar Day was established in 2008 by Martha Brockenbrough, founder of the Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar (SPOGG) and author of Things That Make Us [Sic]. 

Ok, I admit it, I am “one of those” people who cringe when poor grammar is used (partially due to the teacher in me, and partially due to my unwaivering Type A personality). 🙂 Therefore, I was pretty excited to find out that there is an actual day to celebrate good grammar and perhaps “persuade” some offenders to change their ways. 😉

There is actually a website for National Grammar Day with some fun resources (even a song created just for the event)! Click here to see all of the fun! Here are some more great resources to help you teach your students and your own children proper grammar.

In honor of National Grammar Day, Scholastic has a great list of seven common hang-ups for kids and parents, saying that “these are the mistakes you don’t want to make.” Definitely check out these commonly made mistakes so you don’t make them yourself in the future!!

 While you’re celebrating National Grammar Day, check out this fun article from CNN that was published on 3/3/14 highlighting some of the worst grammar fails.

Here are some fun online activities and games to help kids practice (you know, so they don’t grow up to be one of “those” adults)!

Finally, here are some great resources to check out for your classroom or for your own kids (or yourself – hey, we all need practice, right?)

Conclusion

Thanksgiving is a special time of the year when families come together to express gratitude and celebrate the blessings in their lives. It’s also a wonderful opportunity to engage children in fun and educational activities that will not only keep them entertained but also teach them important lessons about the holiday. In this ultimate guide to Thanksgiving activities for kids, we have explored various ways to make this Thanksgiving season memorable for students and children.

We began by highlighting the importance of Thanksgiving activities for kids. These activities offer a chance for children to learn about the history and significance of Thanksgiving, as well as develop important skills such as creativity, critical thinking, and teamwork. With a wide range of crafts, games, and educational resources, you can keep your children engaged and entertained throughout the holiday season.

We then delved into the fun and educational Thanksgiving crafts for kids. From creating handmade Thanksgiving cards to making adorable turkey decorations, these crafts not only provide an opportunity for kids to showcase their creativity but also serve as a wonderful way to bond with classmates and family members. The festive Thanksgiving games for kids were another highlight, offering exciting ways to keep children active and entertained during this festive time.

Additionally, we explored educational Thanksgiving activities for kids, which included lessons and digital teaching resources. These resources are designed to enrich children’s understanding of Thanksgiving by incorporating educational elements into their activities. We also provided Thanksgiving teaching ideas, such as printables and storytelling recommendations, to help you create a dynamic and engaging learning environment for your students and children.

Lastly, we discussed Spanish Thanksgiving teaching ideas, allowing children to explore the holiday from a multicultural perspective. By incorporating Spanish vocabulary and cultural elements into their activities, children can broaden their horizons and develop an appreciation for diversity. If you are interested in more Spanish activities, a great place to start is this post introducing Spanish colors with lots of info and freebies!

As you can see, there are countless ways to make Thanksgiving a memorable and educational experience for children. Check out the various lessons and Thanksgiving activities for kids now, and create lasting memories this Thanksgiving season!
