Let's Talk Turkey!


 


The week before Thanksgiving is a great time to learn about turkeys!  We pair fiction and nonfiction texts to keep the kids engaged so that the pre-holiday crazies don't trot in.  :) 

To get started we had the kids record their schema on the Turkey Trouble recording sheet.
Then, we read the nonfiction book about turkeys from our November Guiding Readers unit.  
We recorded the new information we learned on our Let's Talk Turkey chart. 

We snipped the top off of a paper bag to make our adorable turkey fact holders.  They wrote the facts that they learned on index cards and "stuffed" them inside their turkeys.  Did you see what I did there? Get it? Stuffed turkeys.  I crack myself up.  ha!


These are the recording sheets they used to record their schema and one new thing that they learned.

Their turkey facts.  They drew a picture on one side and wrote the sentence on the other.


 

Happy Thanksgiving Y'all!

  1. These are truly adorable. At my son's preschool the children were required to make stuff out of play-doh and you can picture their craft as a clayey version of these. Thanks for the share.
