This 32 page packet is great for November! You can work on it with your students, or leave it as an emergency activity for the substitute. Either way, it will have your students engaged in a meaningful reading and writing activity that is FUN!!! What an awesome bulletin board this makes! The packet includes:
-Gobble Gobble Gulp! Readers' Theater Script
(This is a FUNNY script wherein two turkeys attempt to convince a town to go with a TOFU option instead! Guest appearances by Guy Fieri, Bobby Flay, and Justin Bieber..) There are 16 speaking parts and 1 part for ALL the students that do not get a speaking role.
A. A Turkey Tweets
(Your students will have a lot of fun tweeting from a turkey's point of view! Included are reward coupons (you will fill in the reward) for the best tweets.) Also included, the Turkey Twitter page your students will print their Tweets on! Great bulletin board!
B. Undercover Turkeys
You've seen this before! Students take the turkey pattern and dress up the turkey in a disguise! It's a lot of fun, and the kids come up with great ideas. You will receive the assignment sheet, grading rubric, and two turkey patterns
C. Turkey Haiku Printable (rubric included)
D. Turkey Acrostic Printables (rubric included)
E. I Am Not A Turkey! writing assignment (2 options...1 is a speech bubble that can be displayed directly from the turkey in disguise's mouth) Adorable on the bulletin board!
F. A Minion Reasons Why You Should Not Eat Turkey idea!! (minion theme)
I hope your students enjoy this as much as ours do!
The Readers' Theater is HYSTERICAL! Your upper grade students would love to perform this for the lower grades! If you teach multiple grades, you could have all the students make a turkey in disguise and give each grade a different writing assignment. You have enough options here.
