So, here are the steps we took to get to our final product. We started with this basic worksheet.
Then I presented these sheets for each letter.
I had students pick one thing they were thankful for from each sheet and we wrote them onto the original worksheet.
Next, we followed these visual directions to create our turkeys (I found the idea on enchantedlearning.com). I made my own visual directions using their pictures (because their's printed on too many pages). Click here to get a copy of the directions.
For step 1, I had already traced the items for my students to cut out. For step 2/3 I had the items pre-made and stored in a zip-loc bag so all my students had to do was glue/write on them.
And lastly, we wrote the things we were thankful for from our worksheets onto our feathers and glued them on our turkeys!
I think they turned out super cute!
