Turkeys are the perfect theme for the month of November.

Turkey Easy Art Activities

In this unit, we make LOTS of cute turkeys! With these crafts, students are independently following step-by-step visual instructions to make their creations. We love crafts that incorporate lots of fine motor skill practice.

Turkey Writing Activities

As with all of our Made For Me Literacy Units, we’ve included the template for a predictable writing chart and a choice board for students to select from.

After students build their sentence for the predictable chart, they create their own turkey disguises and build their sentence again for the class book.

To go along with the class book, we included differentiated writing pages so students can write about their turkey disguises.
