What Does the Turkey Say?

Dog goes woof
Cat goes meow
Bird goes tweet
and mouse goes squeak

Cow goes moo
Frog goes croak
and the elephant goes toot

Ducks say quack
and fish go blub
and the seal goes ow ow ow ow ow

But there's one sound
That no one knows
What does the turkey say?

That's right!  There's no gettin' it out of your head now!  Maybe it's a Spanish thing... or maybe it's a kid thing, but my little Spaniards love the song.  I have some serious doubts on whether they know what they're singing... but hey- it's catchy!  So why not use it to your advantage?  What Does the Turkey Say? is my newest TpT Mini-Unit!!

Basically- James the Turkey is thrown out of the sky when he loses visibility in a blizzard! Luckily, he lands in the Carnivora Family’s yard and they thoughtfully take him in. But with food getting low and the blizzard keeping everyone cooped up, I looks like James could be tonight’s dinner. Uh oh!  

Using reading and writing activities, students read all about James’ dilemma and then choose how James’ story ends- and more precisely, what the turkey says!  Then they wrap it all up by creating a Turkey Glyph that incorporates their stories and some multiplication practice! 

 When it's that time of the year it's so easy to get sucked into the holidays and forget to focus on the learning and think more about the parties.  Well this unit will help you get the best of both worlds.  Have some fun and celebration while  still hitting the Common Core!

Until midnight tomorrow, my new unit will be 20% off- making it only $2.00!!  Check it out here or click one of the pictures above!
