With Thanksgiving coming up next week we have been talking about turkeys a lot. We studied what turkeys are, what they have and what they can do. We then brainstormed a list (see below) of each of those 3 guiding questions. I also put each Common Core standard we were working on as well so that way I could show how it is aligned to the CORE.
Each student got a response sheet that I found on Pinterest from The Kindergarten Center and copied one thing from each column onto their paper.
After we were all done writing it was time to make our turkeys. We are currently in our unit about repeating patterns so naturally this activity also lended itself to math as well as reading and writing. I had the students create turkey that had their feathers in a repeating pattern. Our students are really good with AB patterns and that is what most of them chose to make.
