This Thanksgiving Turkey Literacy Center includes:
- turkey feather for each letter of the alphabet (both uppercase and lowercase)
- blank turkey feathers that can be customized to your needs
PLUS 30 full color picture cards
To assess or practice common core state standard RF.K.1d (Recognize and name all upper- and lowercase letters of the alphabet), place letter feathers on the turkey’s tail and have the student name the letters or say a letter and have the student place the correct letter feather on the turkey.
Practice or assess uppercase and lowercase letters by placing uppercase letter feathers on the turkey’s tail and requiring students to place the matching lowercase letter feather beside it.
This center can also be used to practice and assess the following common core standards:
RF.K.3a Demonstrate basic knowledge of one-to-one letter-sound correspondences by producing the primary sound or many of the most frequent sounds for each consonant.
RF.K.3b Associate the long and short sounds with the common spellings (graphemes) for the five major vowels.
Place letter feathers on the turkey’s tail and have the student say the letter’s sound or show the student a picture card and have them place the letter feather of the object’s beginning or ending sound on the turkey.
RF.K.2d Isolate and pronounce the initial, medial vowel, and final sounds (phonemes) in three-phoneme (consonant- vowel-consonant, or CVC) words.1 (This does not include CVCs ending with /l/, /r/, or /x/.)
Spell simple CVC words with the letter feathers and have the student read the words or show a picture card and have the student use the letter feathers to spell the CVC word.
RF.K.2e Add or substitute individual sounds (phonemes) in simple, one-syllable words to make new words.
Spell a simple one syllable word such as “an” on the turkey’s tail with the letter feathers. Show the students a picture card such as can. Ask them to add a feather to the turkey’s tail to create the new word.
RF.K.3d Distinguish between similarly spelled words by identifying the sounds of the letters that differ.
Pair the picture cards by pictures that differ by one letter.
cat – bat
Show the student one of the picture cards and have them use the letter feathers to spell the word on the turkey’s tail. Show them the paired picture card and ask the student to change the word to another, for example cat to bat.
Counting, Number Sequencing, Math Center
This Thanksgiving Turkey Math Learning Center includes the following in both a color version AND a black and white version (black and white pages can be printed on colored paper to save ink):
- turkey feathers for numbers 0 - 20
- turkey feathers with dots for numbers 1 - 20 (subitizing)
- turkey feathers with tally marks for numbers 1-20
- turkey feathers for the following math symbols: +, -, x, division symbol, =, <, >
- blank turkey feathers that can be customized to your needs
Also includes 4 student response sheets.
Use this learning center to practice counting, number recognition, number sequencing, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, greater than, less than, color recognition, to decorate Thanksgiving bulletin boards, and more.
Practice number sense by writing a number on each turkey. Students must put the correct number feather, dot feather, and tally mark feather on each turkey or leave the turkeys blank and require students to sort the feathers.
Use it to assess or practice common core state standard K.CC.A.2: Count forward beginning from a given number within the known sequence (instead of having to begin at 1). Simply place the beginning number of your choice’s feather in the turkey’s tail on the left side. The student must sequence the next 5 numbers by choosing the correct numbered feathers. The beginning number can be changed again and again.
Assess and/or practice common core standards K.CC.B.4 & K.CC.B.5 (count to tell the number of objects). Place feathers on the turkey’s tail and have the student count the feathers and tell you how many or choose the correct number from a group of numbers or a group of the numbered feathers. Option 2: Place numbers on the turkeys and have students place the correct number of feathers on each turkey.
Assess and/or practice patterns by placing a few feathers on a turkey’s tail in a pattern. Have the student continue the pattern or do the same pattern on a turkey of their own.
Use the greater than, less than feathers to practice common core state standard K.CC.C.7 Compare two numbers between 1 and 10 presented as written numerals. Place 2 numbered feathers on the turkey’s tail with a space in between them. Have the student place the greater than or less than feathers in between the 2 numbers.
The following kindergarten common core standards can be practiced with this center as well:
• CCSS.Math.Content.K.OA.A.4 For any number from 1 to 9, find the number that makes 10 when added to the given number, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record the answer with a drawing or equation.
• CCSS.Math.Content.K.OA.A.5 Fluently add and subtract within 5.
Practice addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division by creating equations on the turkey's tail leaving out a number which the student must supply. For example, 2 + 1 = , 8 - = 6, x 2 = 10, etc.
The following common core state standards for grade 1 and up can also be practiced using this learning center:
• CCSS.Math.Content.1.OA.D.8 Determine the unknown whole number in an addition or subtraction equation relating three whole numbers. For example, determine the unknown number that makes the equation true in each of the equations 8 + ? = 11, 5 = _ – 3, 6 + 6 = _.
• CCSS.Math.Content.1.OA.D.7 Understand the meaning of the equal sign, and determine if equations involving addition and subtraction are true or false. For example, which of the following equations are true and which are false? 6 = 6, 7 = 8 – 1, 5 + 2 = 2 + 5, 4 + 1 = 5 + 2.
• CCSS.Math.Content.1.NBT.B.3 Compare two two-digit numbers based on meanings of the tens and ones digits, recording the results of comparisons with the symbols >, =, and <.
• CCSS.Math.Content.3.OA.A.4 Determine the unknown whole number in a multiplication or division equation relating three whole numbers. For example, determine the unknown number that makes the equation true in each of the equations 8 × ? = 48, 5 = _ ÷ 3, 6 × 6 = ?
