"No Shape For Thanksgiving," and "This Is How We Make a Shape Turkey," are fun and interactive Thanksgiving or turkey themed books.
In the first book, "No Shape For Thanksgiving," Thanksgiving is here and Farmer Brown cannot believe the shape his turkeys are in.
"It was almost Thanksgiving and Farmer Brown could not believe the shape his turkeys
You're in no shape for Thanksgiving, he told Squyres. You're stumpy and boxy and shaped like a square.
And your'e in no shape for Thanksgiving, he told Trina. You're pointy and bent and shaped like a triangle.
And you're in no shape for Thanksgiving, he told Rex. You're long, and stretched and shaped like a rectangle...."
In these activities, the teacher reads the books to students as students follow along and identifies a shape and matches a piece to each page. At the end of the stories, students will sequence the shape turkeys in the order that Farmer Brown talks to them.
