Last week we had fun learning about turkeys and we did lots of turkey themed activities.
We began the week by making a book full of turkey facts. We learned that a male turkey is called a “tom” and a female turkey is called a “hen”. Wild turkeys live in the woods. Turkeys eat seeds, acorns, berries and insects. Baby turkeys are called “poults”.
At centers we practiced counting by 10’s by making these cute turkey art projects. We sorted asking and telling sentences about turkeys and wrote them using our neatest handwriting and ending each sentence with the correct punctuation mark.
We made a sentence wheel and wrote super turkey sentences.
On Friday we wrote a silly story about a turkey. We began by working together as a class. We used this storyboard to plan our story. First we thought of a name for the turkey and where our story would take place. Then we came up with four events that would happen to our turkey in the story. Finally we used our graphic organizer to write a story. As you can see we wrote a very silly story!!!
Everyone was very eager to begin planning and writing their own silly turkey story. Here’s a peek at a few of our finished stories. I think the graphic organizers really helped us!!
