What’s the end-all be-all “symbol” of Thanksgiving? Why, turkeys, of course! So this week we commenced with the making of the turkeys….fingerprint style!
I had stamp pads in various colors, and the kids used their fingerprints to make the turkey’s feathers (staying between the arched lines for each row of feathers).
They also made thumbprints that made up the turkey’s head and body. Finally, they used markers to draw in eyes, a beak, a waddle and turkey legs.
With one language group, I had students describe and write about their turkey.
For articulation students, I did drill as usual and allowed the students to add X number of feathers to their turkey after each round of drill.
Most wanted to take their turkeys home immediately, but a few kids let me keep them to show off on my wall.
I’d love for you to post photos of your turkey masterpieces on my facebook page or tag me on Instagram
Oh and since it’s the season for thankfulness, I should say….
I’m oh-so-thankful you spent a little time reading my blog today.
