Turkeys on Strike!!

Here's our turkeys!!! Aren't they just precious??


Remember a few days ago I posted about our Turkey writing? Well here's a recap - 

We started our writing this week: "Save a Turkey!! Eat more _________!" We started by reading 'Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving, by Dav Pilkey. Love this book!! It is so adorable.
In the story, on the day before Thanksgiving a class takes a field trip to a turkey farm. They get to play with eight turkeys but are shocked to learn that Farmer Mack Nugget plans to eat the turkeys for Thanksgiving dinner!! So the kids smuggle the turkeys out under their shirts, and everyone gets to go vegetarian for Thanksgiving. Turkeys are saved!!

So then we started brainstorming what we want to eat instead of turkey for Thanksgiving. The students had some great Louisiana ideas: gumbo, jambalaya, fried catfish, po-boys, shrimp fettucine, etc. Great meals!! So we used our circle maps and tree maps and created some wonderful opinion piece paragraphs. I am putting up the bulletin board today, so you can see the finished product. I found the turkey pattern at the Freebielicious blog. Great little site that has so much information for grade school teachers. Make sure to check it out!
