Definitely Check Out the Preview for DETAILED PICTURES of final product!
This file is a persuasive/opinion writing activity about a turkey that is about to be cooked and eaten for Thanksgiving. There’s a story for the students to read or you to read to them…I made it b&w so they could have a copy too if you wanted them to.
Included in this product is a planning template, a variety of primary and intermediate writing papers for their final product, and an ADORABLE turkey craftivity with templates. This craftivity and writing assignment would make a great hallway display!
I think it’s really important to model everything before asking students to do that, yet when I do the same writing assignment as theirs….they tend to copy a lot of mine. So…..I used the same concept of persuasive/opinion writing, but used my Christmas product Don’t Eat the Gingerbread Writing Craftivity as a modeling sample instead. I used the same plan and how I expect them to write their final product, yet my topic is that I’m a gingerbread man and am about to be eaten and I use my opinion why not to eat me and then I try to persuade them to eat something else instead of me. That’s what I expect them to do in this Don’t Eat Me Turkey Writing Craftivity….just follow the plan and it will take you through the entire process like my writing sample.
There is also a rubric included.
This is so fun and my students love it and really get into it....I hope yours do as well!
If you need anything or have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me….I’m happy to help in any way I can!
