The Turkey spinners can be copied or laminated for repeat use (small group or individual play). Put the spinner right onto the middle and make enough spinners for each child, or you can pair children to work together. You can use the feather images included in the packet or cut out your own using a die cut machine for quicker prep. Children will spin their turkey spinner and then choose feathers to complete the three turkeys on the mat - or you can select one turkey first and do as a group and then assign turkeys to children depending on their ability. Take time to ask what feathers the children are choosing and why (having children explain their thinking helps with higher order thinking.) Also by asking in advance gets them to start planning which will activate specific cognitive stems in the brain. Standards are identified on the direction page along with HOT questions to prompt cognitive thought for children which are also aligned to CLASS specific higher order thinking skills for instructional support. This activity is also great for differentiation!!
