It is a tradition to build turkeys during Thanksgiving. Your students will be thankful you found this file because it has many simple ways to make making cut-and-paste turkeys fun and educational.
You will find:
~A feather for every letter of the alphabet and turkey bodies and heads to put them on (skill: penmanship and letter recognition)
~Feathers with common historical “First Thanksgiving” words, followed by turkey heads and bodies pre-labeled for feather sorting
The amount of feathers and variety make differentiating your instruction easy and meaningful. For instance, you can assign a personalized number of feathers to complete, include cursive letter-writing, and sort the word feathers by difficulty. Their size, and the text spacing, should be manageable for students still new and nervous about cutting. If not used as a center activity, I recommend having students paste turkeys onto a background page.
I hope you enjoy this resource!
