Looking for some printable and digital Thanksgiving grammar activities to give your students some extra grammar practice this November?
This set of Thanksgiving grammar activities contains two different activities for practicing and reviewing prepositions of place in the classroom or online.
You will receive a deck of digital Thanksgiving prepositions of place Boom Cards and a set of printable prepositions of place clip cards. Also included is a worksheet on which your students will record their answers.
Boom Cards are a great digital grammar activity, perfect for distance learning. Clip cards are a hands-on, tactile way for students to practice their grammar and reading skills. Both grammar activities are self-checking and provide instant feedback for students. You can choose to use one or both!
This activity is ideal for preschool, first grade and second grade, as well as beginner ESL students.

About Clip Cards
These clip cards are quick and easy to prepare and instructions are included. To prepare the clip cards, print on cardstock and cut around the edges and down the middle of the page to create two separate cards. Fold each card in half and glue together. For extra durability, laminate the cards. (Full instructions are included.)
Students use clothespins or paper clips to choose the letter/letters missing from the given word, then flip the card to check their answer against the correct one given on the back.
About Boom Cards
Boom Cards are digital, self-checking task cards that are hosted at Boom Learning. A set of Boom Cards is called a Deck.

To use Boom Cards, you must be connected to the Internet. Boom Cards play on modern browsers (Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and Edge). Apps are available for Android, iPads, iPhones, and Kindle Fires. For security and privacy, adults must have a Boom Learning account to use and assign Boom Cards. You will be able to assign the Boom Cards you are buying with "Fast Pins," (play provides instant feedback for self-grading Boom Cards). Fast Play is always a free way for students to engage with Boom Cards decks.
For additional assignment options, you'll need a premium account. If you are new to Boom Learning, you will be offered a free trial of our premium account.

If you choose not to stay on a premium account after your free trial, you will still be able to assign all your Boom Cards to as many students as you see fit using Fast Play pins (which give instant feedback for decks that are self-grading).
