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.
      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.

  1. My folks purchased a three room line home in Delaware County in 1955 and deliberately paid it off more than 30 years. They never acquired against the house. We didn't eat out three times each week. We didn't go on extraordinary get-aways. Two weeks at the Jersey shore was okay. My folks had secondary school degrees, yet could give the chance to myself, sibling and sister to get professional educations and step up in the American social request. usacheckcashingstore.com/san-diego
