Disguise a Turkey Giveaway {A Thanksgiving Tradition in Mrs. Dailey's Classroom}

Hi Friends! It's Melissa from Mrs. Dailey's Classroom and today I am talking all things turkey! Every year I read the story, Turkey Trouble and then assign an adorable disguise the turkey project

The kids are asked to disguise their turkey so that is makes it past Thanksgiving! They always eat that idea right up! 
 There are many extensions to the project. I have included different graphic organizers, a writing prompt, writing paper, letter to the parents explaining the project, and more!

 I also love these introduction cards! Right after I read the story I show them these disguised turkeys! I always here likes of laughing and it's like I can see the wheels turning in their brains as to how they will disguise their turkeys!

Here are some disguised turkeys! They rocked this year! I always love seeing them come back! Once we get them back, the students share how they disguised their turkeys and then I hang them in the hallway!

 I love using the writing piece when the kids bring back their turkeys. They sequence how they disguised their turkey and write about how they kept it safe!

I don't give many guidelines, so some students bring them back in shoe boxes. Isn't this snowman turkey adorable?

I hope you love this project as much as I do! You can check it out in my TpT Shop HERE.
Thanks, friends!
