Let's Talk Turkey....Gobble, Gobble! This post is full of ideas to celebrate turkeys and have a little fun while doing it! It's a perfect time of year to do just that! I usually like to post pictures of kids "doing" the activities, but these updated activities are hot off the press and we haven't used the updated versions with our kids!
Turkeys" unit. This is an OLD unit that just got a total redo! So, if you already own it, go to your My Purchases section on tpt and downloaded it again. It also has a few new activities that were not included in the original unit.
This is a fun way to teach ordinal number. Reproduce turkey clip art on various colors of paper. You will want to use 10 different colors. Invite the children to line up their turkeys in a parade. Now, match the ordinal numbers by placing them in the correct order 1-10. Each child will have their turkeys in a different order. This means when they complete the recording sheet, each child will have different answers!
Thanksgiving" unit. This is an OLD unit that just got a total redo! So, if you already own it, go to your My Purchases section on tpt and downloaded it again.
To just do a turkey unit without learning about turkeys just doesn't seem right! After doing quite a bit of research, I wrote a nonfiction book about turkeys. When I started writing these monthly theme nonfiction books, my goal was to teach my kids the nonfiction features throughout the year and not wait and try to cover them all in one unit. Let me brag a bit! They rocked it! After using the books each week, the kids knew all of the nonfiction features by the end of the year...by name! Each book cover previous taught features and introduces something new. The "Turkeys" book covers cut a ways, labels, headings, bold text, and a glossary.
The "Turkeys" book is included in the November Guided Reading Unit.
