Kiddos LOVE telling, re-telling and acting out poems like "Five Little Turkeys" over and over again! This "Five Little Turkeys" re-telling craftivity is yet another way for students to have fun with this terrific, engaging poem! For a better look, just click on PREVIEW!

Students will be making a re-telling envelope that features the poem on one side and a barn picture on the other side. They will then make turkey and farmer stick-puppets by cutting out the characters and gluing them onto the ends of six craft sticks. These can be used to mimic the actions of the five little turkeys and the farmer who comes looking for them! When they are ready to take it home and read the poem to parents, the stick-puppets can be placed inside the envelope and it's ready to go! You'll also find a poem poster to display in class.... So fun!

Here's my version of this cute little poem......

Five little turkeys sitting on the ground.

The first one said, “Oh my, we’re getting round.”

The second one said, “Do I smell pumpkin pie?”

The third one said, “I think I’m going to cry.”

The fourth one said, “Thanksgiving is getting near.”

The fifth one said, “Shhh! The farmer might hear!”

Then… thump, thump came the farmer as he flipped on the light and the five little turkeys trotted out of sight!

Gobble – Gobble - Shhh!

Gobble – Gobble - Shhh!

Gobble – Gobble - Shhh!
