Looking for something fun and interactive to do before Thanksgiving break? Engage your students in an interactive Read and Think Aloud activity based on a Thanksgiving book that they will love - and they'll work on an important reading comprehension strategy as well. Thelonius Turkey Lives! (on Felicia Feguson's Farm) by Lynn Rowe Reed is an entertaining story about a turkey who is worried he is being fattened up for Thanksgiving dinner. (Check your local library or Amazon.com to find the book.) In the end, it turns out that Thelonius' feathers have been going to a hat factory! Your kids will love the surprise ending, the colorful illustrations and humor as they share their own thinking in a student response journal. Make party hats with colorful feathers as an after reading project, and enjoy feather cookies (if you want to make them from the recipe from the book as a treat for your class.) Included is a 5-page student response journal with cover, 2 page teacher guide with think along prompts, a printable feather cookie recipe to send home with your students and a party hat template.
