Five Plump Turkey - Shared Reading




My kiddos LOVE the Five Little Pumpkins song. They were really sad when we stopped singing it after Halloween. I'm excited to teach them the Five Plump Turkeys song. I'm going to use it for our shared reading the week before Thanksgiving. You can pick up a copy for your class here.

The packet includes a poster that can be used for shared reading or singing the song.

The packet also includes a large print version of the song that can be assembled on chart paper or in a pocket chart for shared reading. 



The packet also includes an ordinal number assessment. There's a basic assessment which asks the child to color the turkeys in order (1st, 2nd, 3rd). The advanced assessment asks the child to color the turkeys out of order (2nd, 4th, 5th).

Also, the packet includes color copies and black & white copies. So colored printer or not, your packet will still look super cute!

What songs or other activities do you use to keep your kiddos engaged before the holiday season?
