In "Aw, Turkey Feathers! ABC Order" -
The student will read the words on each turkey’s feathers, and then write them in ABC order on the turkey’s pie plate. Skills required include alphabetizing to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd letter (and beyond).
In "Turkey Lurkey Guide Words" -
On each turkey’s sign, the student will write the correct entry word (selected from the Word Box) that goes between the Pilgrims’ guide words.
This packet would be perfect for morning work, independent work in your literacy center, or to pop into your sub tub. You can find more Thanksgiving and fall activity packets in my store as I post them under the "Holidays - Thanksgiving" and “Fall into Autumn” custom categories to the left!
