TURN INTO A TURKEY is a Thanks and Giving themed activity and poster set aimed at increasing student awareness on giving thanks and giving back. Being called a “turkey” can have a negative connotation. BUT not anymore using this acronym!
Take time to thank someone.
Use your skills to help out.
Relax with friends and family.
Kindness and Caring Count

The social/emotional impact students have on each other and the people around them is magnified during holidays and seasonal times. The poster set and activities aim to remind and teach kids the importance of others around them, along with the difference they make.
