I'm NOT a Turkey project

My students finished their scary stories just in time for me to start a "I'm NOT a turkey!" project this year.  It was the first time I had done it and they turned out SOOO stinkin' cute!

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:
baseball player

Groucho Marx

Little Red Riding Hood

A farmer

A cheerleader

A cat

A king

Jewelry 

A lamb

A pile of leaves

A gypsy

Mario

A business man

A clown

A mermaid

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.
