I can't take any credit for this printout I am going to share. I have had this in a file since I started teaching first grade and I have no clue who I got it from. Below is a parent letter and turkey graphic that I send home with my kids. I usually give them about a week to complete the project. I know it's after Thanksgiving, but maybe you could add it to your fill for next year.

Turkey in Disguise
Long time no blog! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving with their families and didn't have to travel too far. I am dedicating myself to coming up with some cute Christmas ideas. I have been slacking a bit lately. I had some devastating news last week. My mother, who I did the ovarian cancer benefit for was just recently diagnosed with breast cancer. I was taking some time off from blogging (even though I could have still spent hours on the computer) to really visit with family and friends over the holidays. I have some pictures and a printable from my favorite turkey activity I do with my kiddos. I'm sure you have heard of this and you may even do it in your own classroom.
This year was a huge hit! I had 17 turkeys in disguise brought back to school. I think the most I have had in the past has been around 10, so this made the judging extra tough. Here are some pictures of the turkeys I had brought in. I love the shopping turkey with the coach bag and 50 bucks. Too cute!!!
This was a tutu turkey. Her mom is the one who did our Halloween party and also owns Hannahs tutus.
I laughed pretty hard when this one was brought in. She was so proud because no one would ever find her turkey in this basket of yarn!
A piano turkey! Who would have thought. She loves to play piano and I thought this was a pretty cute idea and a first.
