How to Catch a Plump and Perky Turkey...

Yesterday, we read this super cute book:
In the story, all the turkeys have left town because they don't want to get eaten for Thanksgiving dinner! To keep the town of Squawk Valley from eating shredded wheat for their annual feast, the townspeople designed a trap to get the turkeys to come to them. So...we designed our own turkey traps, too! I had the kids work together to brainstorm and share ideas, and they had a blast drawing the traps and writing directions for them. I really did love all the hilarious and genius ideas, but the boat trap idea cracks me up! You have to check out the poster below!


All the posters are on display in the hallway. Here is one of them...


I love that she thinks the oven is a tanning place! So funny!


Poor turkey. She has no idea her vacation is about to end...

Having the kids design and draw a trap is such a fun idea. Writing assignments like these that allow kids to be creative are great! I bet the kids were proud of their work.
