Turkey Time

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  We hosted my husband's family.  We had a total of 19 people over to our house.  I didn't know my house could hold 19 people - haha.

On this turkey day, I thought I would share some turkey fun from the past few weeks.  I am going to start with a video that my kids loved, loved, loved.  Save this little ditty for next year.  It will being going through your head all day.  {Don't ask me how I know.}


One day this month, I decided on the fly to do a directed drawing of a turkey.  I quickly drew up my sample and the kids went to work.  Here are a few of my students' pictures.  I just love how each one is original!  {Let me know if you are interested in the directions for next year.  I can get them written up for you.}




Did you see Ms. Makinson's Thanksgiving Turkey Writing Activity in TpT's November 17th 10 free download's newsletter?  Well, I did and thought it was super cute!  I decided to modify it a smidge for my students.  Instead of writing what they were thankful for, my students drew pictures.



My students also answered the question "Do you like to eat turkey?".  I had the students write their names on post it notes to add to our chart.  I have to say that I was a little surprised by the results.  I was sure at least one student would answer no.  :)


I leave you with a picture of our yummy turkey from today.  Every year, my husband deep fries our turkey. Soooo good!  How do you prepare your turkey for Thanksgiving?
