This week in Tot School we learned all about Turkeys! We had a fun week and here are some of the things we did. You can see more about this unit at A Mommy Talks with Madonna.
We worked with the letter T this week, for obvious reasons! We used this great T letter sound activity from Making Learning Fun.
We also did this spelling puzzle for the word “Turkey”. The puzzle came in all Uppercase letters or al Lowercase letters. We used both a couple of times this week. E liked this a lot.
We used this clothespin match game to work on number recognition, and colors. Each feather had a color and a number on it. The turkey had colored numbers on it, so you could use it for either.
We talked about the parts of the turkey on day 1 of our unit. I cut the parts of a turkey out of construction paper and then E put them together.
On day 2 we talked about where turkeys live. We had planned on building a turkey nest using sticks and branches to build a turkey nest. However, the day we taught this lesson, it rained on our parade. We ended up using construction paper to make sticks and leaves for our nest. I let her use her scissors to practice cutting, too.
After we were done with our nest we put our turkey from day 1 in the nest so he could live there. :)
We would have taken a field trip this week, but really, where do you go to see turkeys? As a substitute we worked on this turkey power-point. Not the most stellar power-point, but it gobbled, and that made E happy. You can download the power point at

Ok, so that was our week. Remember that all of our lesson plans and printables are available for free at 2 Teaching Mommies. Be sure and check out what we are up to next week when we learn about Pilgrims and Indians!
