Rhyme Time Turkeys Integrate Phonemic Awareness, Phonics, and Art!
1. First, select which body style you prefer to use.
2. Next, choose which word family feathers you would like to use.
3. Coloring the Turkey Feathers
Have the children use dot art or watercolors to paint feathers page. I prefer to use dot art – it dries the same day and it’s far less messy! I have the students do this portion right when they enter in the morning. The feathers are usually dry by the time we begin centers, so we can move onto the next step…
4. Completing the Word Families
5. Assembling Your Turkeys
Last, have your students cut out the feathers and assemble behind the turkey body. Glue or staple onto construction paper and mount onto last page in file (“____’s Rhyme Time Turkey”). . Laminate if you wish. (If you are laminating, use glue instead of staples). Display for the perfect THANKSGIVING DAY BULLETIN BOARD for the month of November! This product has been updated to include the “Rhyme Time Turkeys” display lettering shown in the preview photo!
Enjoy! If you create this Thanksgiving bulletin board in your classroom, I would love to hear from you or see a pic of how it turns out.
I wish you the happiest Thanksgiving, and I hope you get some well-deserved time off of school to spend with your family!
