The Great Turkey Race FREEBIE!


This morning I read this story to my class. I am sure most of you have read it before, but just in case you haven't...three turkeys decide to have a field day to decide who will be the "special Thanksgiving turkey!" Well, they find out that "special" means they will be eaten for Turkey dinner. The last event they keep running and run away from the farm. That is how it ends! My kids asked me, "Mrs. Lee, where did they go?" Well, don't you just love those great teaching moments!? I quick made this little sheet and had them write/draw about where they thought the turkeys went! They turned out great. Here is a FREEBIE for you! :-)
The Great Turkey Race

Here a few places that my kiddos came up with!!
To McDonalds...

To the beach...

To the pumpkin patch....

To the city....

  17. Hi Tammy,
    I was looking through your Thanksgiving stuff, and I love it. The only problem is that I cant download it because it says you set as private. If you could be so kind and send this stuff to me, I would really appreciate it?!
    Thanks so much.
