Is your class ready to talk turkey?

In this 95-page packet, I've included:

Part 1: Posters to hang in your classroom and to use while introducing turkeys (real-life photographs that show the parts of a turkey, along with important vocabulary).

Part 2: Hook 'Em – These article pages were designed as a way for you to "hook" your students at the beginning of your turkey unit. You can display the article pages on your document camera as a whole group or print and display during small group instruction.

Part 3: Differentiated All About Turkeys Mini-Books – These are differentiated mini-books that can be used during small group instruction. There are three versions. Each version is slightly easier than the last. I wanted to give you options because I know that many of our students come in reading at different ability levels. It is up to you to pick and choose which articles you use with your groups. You can either print in color and laminate or print them in grayscale. Text-Dependent Response sheets follow!

Part 4: Write a turkey summary! Real-life photographs will enhance your students' understanding of turkeys. Students will write facts about a turkey in a summary format.

Part 5: True/False Turkey Activity – After learning facts about turkeys, students will sort the sentences according to whether they are true or false. I've also provided a cut/paste sheet too that requires students to read simple sentences and glue them in the correct column.

Part 6: Graphic Organizers Galore – These graphic organizers, vocabulary books, and independent practice sheets can be used however you wish! I tried to offer you many different options to help meet the needs of your diverse group.

In addition, I've also included links to some fabulous turkey web resources and books!
