“Shapin’ Up With Turkeys” provides a quick, easy and super-fun “print & go” craftivity, that will help review 2D shapes in some interesting & engaging ways.
The 2D shapes included are: circle, oval, square, rectangle, triangle, hexagon, pentagon, octagon, trapezoid, rhombus, heart & star.
The packet includes patterns for the above shapes, so that children can make a “Perky Turkey Pal” of their own.
There are a variety of turkeys to choose from; for example, the “keepsake” turkey’s head is traced from your students’ shoe, or you can choose from 10 other head patterns.
Shape templates come in a large, full-page size, as well as a smaller, two-on-a-page pattern, allowing you to make just a “shapely head”, or a “full body” turkey.
Decide what’s most appropriate for your students by checking the PREVIEW for lots of samples.
There are a variety of wing, hat, shoe, leg & feather patterns as well. Pick your favorites, or give students a choice.
Accordion-folding the leg strips, is a fun way for students to strengthen their finger muscles, while adding to the cuteness factor of their turkey.
If your kiddos are like mine, they will enjoy the “boing-boing” effect.
To help practice the “positional words” portion of the 2D shape standard, I’ve also included a “Corn Cob” whole group, assessment game.
Use the shape posters and pocket chart cards to introduce your lesson. I’ve also included a “Shapely Turkeys” bookmark for your students.
Completed projects make an adorable display. Dangle them from the ceiling as a border in your hallway. I’ve included several posters to add extra pizzazz.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you a fun-filled time with your own little turkeys.
