Turkey Trouble Freebie!


We read the story,  Turkey Trouble by Wendi Silvano and made Wanted signs for our turkeys.
The students decided on a disguise and drew their turkey.
Then, they had to decide what they would give as a reward.  The students had to choose a reward that they could actually give.  For example,  2,000 legos.




OOPS!  That one should say,  One I Pad.

Love how she spelled one.  :)

OOPS!  After I uploaded this freebie I realized that I forgot to add Jen Jones to the credits page for the fonts.  I have her commercial license so credit isn't required.  However, we all want to be recognized for our work and her fonts are AMAZING!!!

  5. LOVE it! Last year we read this book and I sent home a template for kids to decorate/disguise the turkey at home---but Thanksgiving seems early this year and I hadn't gotten around to sending it home. This will be PERFECT! Thanks so much for sharing!!!

    1. Hi Angie, I've always done it that way too but I noticed that it was the parents who were doing all of the work so I changed it this year. ;)

    2. You are so right! We have "kids" decorate a scarecrow at home and you can tell who "assists" their parents, and which ones take the lead and their parents assist them. :) Plus, now that I'm a momma of a first grader, I'm realizing about the lack of time at home to do these kinds of things, and I'm thankful my own son hasn't had a project like it!! Reading together and talking about books is my favorite time to spend with him---as it should be with my school kids!
