On this page, you will find fun math activities that will help your students fall in love with math this November! These autumn and Thanksgiving lesson plans review addition, subtraction, multiplication, and decimals.
Many students find traditional math exercises boring and dull. I encourage you to use fun powerpoint presentations to bring life to these boring mathematics exercises.
At the beginning of math class, provide your students with a fun powerpoint warm up activity using one of the Thanksgiving Dinner math word problems. These animated word problems require students to solve questions involving addition, multiplication, money, decimal points, and place value.
The next day, have your students complete an animated fall math puzzle that will engage your students solving addition and subtraction equations.
I hope that these Thanksgiving math teaching resources will provide you with some ideas for some fun math activities that you can complete with your students during the month of November.
For this Thanksgiving Dinner math powerpoint presentation, students have to use both addition and multiplication to solve these Thanksgiving word problems.
The math word problems in this activity involve money, so students are also reviewing money, decimal points, and place value as well.
These math word problems use an engaging grocery cart style format and students have to calculate how much money is spent to buy food for a Thanksgiving dinner.
There are 5 sets of question and answer slides in this powerpoint lesson, as well as two student response worksheets for students to work out their answers on.
These 5 Thanksgiving Dinner word problems would work well as a daily warm up activity which you could do each day of the week prior to Thanksgiving. Your students will love reviewing multiplication, addition, and money equations using this engaging and animated November activity!
This powerpoint presentation includes two student response worksheets for students to write their answers on (one worksheet is shown below).

Hi Heidi. I just want t say that my class is year one in Australia and they just love all of your work. We use your book report projects religiously and it has made my teaching and the students' learning improve by about 100%. The students just love it. Thank you so much for your help.

Hi there! I just found your website through Pinterest, and I am looking forward to using your book reports that I just bought to help motivate my fifth grade students! Thanks for putting these out there. I'm a relatively new teacher and need all the help I can get!

I stumbled across your website over the weekend and I'm SO glad I did! Some great ideas and an extra thank you for the UK spellings! I bought the back to school pencils, punctuation puppies, Willy Wonka group project and the characters! I think these are great resources and even though it's the summer holidays, I've been into school to get my display paper up and have put up the title banners - they look brilliant! Thank you!

Heidi, I just had to write and let you know that your website has helped me create the most awesome author study of Roald Dahl's books. My students loved completing the big animal shaped projects you designed for The Enormous Crocodile, Esio Trot, and The Giraffe, and the Pelly and Me. For the final project, they had so much fun writing and drawing about the characters from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory using your Willy Wonka Factory project. Thanks for sharing your scrumdiddlyumptious ideas !

I feel so fortunate to have found your website and I have referred several of my co-workers to your website. Just for the month of January, there were three teachers displaying your book reports. I had the trophy reports, my neighbor to the left had the computer reports, and my neighbor to the right had the birthday cake reports. Thank you so very much for all of your work!

I just wanted to say thank you for the most amazing teaching resources that I have ever come across in my thirty years of teaching. I have used many of your book report sets this year and my students absolutely loved them. What was particularly pleasing was seeing some of my reluctant readers (especially the boys) really wanting to read books and complete the activities. Keep up the great work!
