See Turkeys Run! Run Turkeys Run! Fun Graphing Activity!

Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful for all of our blessings!
Little people sometimes say it best! I have so many blessings in my life! I want to take this time to say how thankful I am for the blessing of your friendship!
I have posted this FREE before, but it is so popular I am sharing it again!
This is a set of black and white realistic turkeys for literacy activities.

There are three different writing grids, so you can pick the right one for your age group. Also included is a blank turkey page so students can add a picture to their story or the littlest learners can just draw and dictate thankful pictures.

Great for students to color, after their story is written or pictures are drawn. They are extra cute when stuff as added, feathers, beads, etc.

There are 3 Title Pages: What I Am Thankful For, How To Cook A Turkey, and How To Disguise A Turkey and an Ending Page: Happy Thanksgiving.

The students love to share their stories! They can be made into a class book to be read and reread or posted for all to see.

This is a new activity that I posted a few days ago!
Horizontal and vertical graphing can sometimes be very confusing for little learners, so I have created this Thanksgiving product to include large and small pieces for a better visual understanding of the concept. Learning to do graphing should be a fun unforgettable activity!

Please note….. I picked turkey clipart that is lifelike. They look like real turkeys and are very similar! This can be confusing for some children, but this makes a good visual discrimination practice and evaluation activity, as well as graphing.

There is a page to make your own dice using the turkey dice template, which is tricky for many children! An easier version is to create a large dice using the six larger turkeys and a square Kleenex box or cut the small turkeys and glue them to small wooden cubes to create dice.
It works best to print the activity out first, to help you decide, what size you want to make the large graphing grid. (Not included.)

For the large activity, you will need to create your own large graphing grid, preferably one that can be reused again and again! It can be any size you wish! Plus you will need colored paper to fill the grid squares, unless coloring them in with a onetime use.

You can use any size large piece of paper, heavy vinyl picnic table cover or plastic like a shower curtain and create a large visual floor graph to use with the pieces. Just add the turkeys and colored pieces of paper to fill in the boxes as each turkey progresses in the graph. They can be taped on, but I like to use binder clips to have the turkeys standing up! This is a wonderful way to have a hands on learning activity, especially for little learners being introduced to graphing.
You can also create a large graphing grid on a chalkboard, whiteboard or paper, then carefully taping the pieces on, creating a large wall hands on activity.

You may want to start by introducing the large graphing activity using only two or three turkeys and gradually add all six. The included paper grids can be trimmed so that only a 2 or 3 grid is used!

Children love picking out their favorite turkeys and quietly cheering them to the finish.

This activity can be used with individual students, small groups, the whole class and also in a center or pocket chart. Another activity that can be played by printing out extra turkeys is Concentration.

Note the large graphing grid is not included in this product! Download the three page Preview in my store to see the complete activity.
