TURKEY WEEK has molded us into quite the turkey experts! We can now share many interesting facts about where they live, what they eat, and the unique characteristics that make them such interesting creatures! We spent the week giggling and gobbling and reciting turkey poems and singing turkey songs! We sang and recited, and recited and sang! We even practiced “turkey breathing” in yoga class!
While reading books like “Turkey Trouble”, “All About Turkeys”, “A Plump and Perky Turkey” and many others, we heard about how many of these silly turkeys were trying to hide and disguise themselves so as not to be seen during Thanksgiving. This was so funny AND clever!
We created more turkeys than you could possibly imagine, each one made with a unique technique and a variety of materials! Who knew we could all make these creatures come to life with lint rollers wrapped in bubble wrap, dish brushes, paint, feathers, and our hands and feet?! Even the littlest of friends here at school put together quite the little gobblers! AMAZING!
Using feathers, we also eagerly sorted and counted, and even made patterns! We are strengthening our math and fine motor skills with each passing week! We focused on letter T in phonics all week as we compiled lists of “t” words, recited our “T is for turkey” chant, and practiced letter recognition and formation!
By the end of the week, we were talking turkey and gobbling down the hallways!
