Thanksgiving Turkey - Word Families

Includes 72 word families (turkeys) and a page of feathers.
Also includes a page of "blank turkeys" in case there are some word families that you would like that I didn't include! Or, I would be happy to make some for you. Email me at or leave a comment.

This activity can be used in several ways!

The main idea is to have your students brainstorm words that belong to the word family on the turkey's body. Then, have them write each word onto a feather and glue them to the turkey. They can also colour the turkeys when they are finished!

Ways to use these turkeys:
- You can give each student a few turkeys that they will be responsible for and turn them into a fantastic classroom display around Thanksgiving.
- You can use this as a literacy center and only use the word families you are currently working on.
- You can use this as a whole-group activity and do a few each day.
