Turkey Anyone?

Mamaw (my mom) put together this adorable turkey for my kids to create during those two days before the Thanksgiving Break!  The plan is to have a Skype session with Mamaw and the kids so she can show them how to put things together!  They hear a lot about her, but have never gotten to talk with her. I think it will be to see if it will work!

If you'd like the patterns for the can download them HERE.  or HERE.

I thought we'd also try the Draw and Tell story of the Turkey Lake.
You can view a librarian telling the story so that you can see how to tell the story and draw as you tell.
Sometimes I have the kids draw it too...other times, I just have them listen to the story and see if they can figure out what I'm drawing!

I used to have a story about the Wild Turkeys, but I like this one much better!

When we're done with the turkey craft....the plan is to have them write about their turkeys.  I think it would be cute to laminate the turkeys they create and add a magnet to the back so that they can put it on their fridge at home!

Have a great day!
