This center activity is perfect for working on beginning sounds. Each turkey is labeled with a letter. There are 4 feathers with a picture that starts with that letter. Children match the feathers to the turkeys according to the beginning sound that they hear. There are also 3 worksheets included as well to reinforce the center. Each worksheet has 9 turkeys with a picture and children cut and glue the feathers with letters to the match. The same activities are included for letters as well. Each turkey has a letter and there are 4 feathers with capital and lowercase letters to match. There are also 3 worksheets that include matching lowercase and capital letters.
*Velcro dots can be added to the turkey and feathers for securing. You could also hot glue the feathers to clothespins to help with fine motor skills. Magnets are another option. Place magnets on the back of feathers and give children a cookie sheet to put their turkey on. When they place their feathers on the tray behind the turkey, they won’t slide around!
