More Turkey Talk

Holidays are great opportunities for fun-filled writing lessons.  Students are usually excited by the holidays and are eager to fill their notebooks with thoughts on these experiences.

Here’s another Turkey Talk activity just in time for Thanksgiving.

Teaching Idea:  Partner students and instruct them to trace each other’s hand.  Use the fingers to write words associated with a turkey or Thanksgiving Day.

Allow the students time to decorate their turkeys and display–OR, students could keep these in their writing notebooks for more Thanksgiving Day topics.

Here are a few word association ideas for this activity:

  • Adjectives describing a turkey 
  • Verbs describing what a turkey does
  • Things We are Thankful For
  • Autumn Words
  • Scientific Words from a lesson on Turkeys
