We read the book A Plump and Perky Turkey.
Then I sent a blank template home with them and told them that they needed to dress their turkey up in a disguise so that it wouldn't get eaten for Thanksgiving.
Here's some of the ones my students brought back:
|Little Red Riding Hood|
|A pile of leaves|
|A business man|
Then I had them write speech bubbles like they were talking to the farmer explaining (persuading) the farmer as to why they were definitely NOT a turkey! If you would like the template or the letter I sent home, don't hesitate to email me! If I have time later, I will add by each what my students wrote.
