PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a fun common core aligned activity/project that students can either do in your classroom or take home for family fun. Before I send this project assignment home, I read both books, "Turkey Trouble" and "Turkey Claus" by Wendi Silvano, to the students to increase their motivation and to stimulate their thinking about funny ways that a turkey can hide. I have included comprehension questions to use while you read the books as well as story retell picture cards/puppets to help students retell the story. After we have read both books and compared them, I introduce their assignment. I read them the instruction sheet before I send it home and I answer any and all questions. You can give them time in class to brainstorm and begin to work on their story. I included the story map for this purpose. There are two turkeys you can choose from, one with and one without feathers. I usually give the students a week to complete this project and then the students each read their turkey disguise story to the class. It is one of their most favorite assignments and gets the whole school involved once we display them in the hall. Families thank me for involving them in such a fun activity with their child! If you’ve never done this with your class, it will soon become one of your favorite activities all year.
