Turkey Trouble!

*This post contains an Amazon Affiliate link*

It's the first Wild About Books Wednesday of November! Can you believe it?! Thanksgiving is right around the corner, so I thought I would whip up a cute freebie for one of my favorite Thanksgiving books - (aff. link) Turkey Trouble by Wendi Silvano! If you're new to my blog, each Wednesday I share ideas for a book that can be used in speech/language therapy! If you're a blogger, I'd love if you would link up and share your own ideas! Just use the picture at the end of this post to link back to me!
Turkey Trouble is a hilarious tale of an ingenious little fowl! It's almost Thanksgiving and he is knee-deep in trouble! I mean, who wants to be a turkey on Thanksgiving?! He doesn't want to end up on a dinner plate, so he tries to disguise himself! First, he tries to dress up like a horse... but cow recognizes him! Each time he tries a new disguise, a fellow farm animal see through it. Finally, he comes up with an amazing solution - he dresses up like a pizza man and delivers pizza to his farmer's house! It's a win-win for everyone. haha.. The farmer and his family gobble down pizza on Thanksgiving and Turkey trots to see another day!

I created a freebie for sequencing! This will be perfect for students with sequencing or comprehension goals. It can also be used in a regular education classroom! This book is perfect for an interactive read aloud. Students sequence the story by drawing the correct disguise onto the turkeys. First, they'll draw a horse costume (then a cow, pig, sheep, etc).
If you're interested in this freebie you can download it HERE

Other ideas:
- Problem Solving: What would you do if you were turkey?
- Vocabulary: This book is great for farm vocabulary.
- Describing: Describe each of turkey's disguises.
- Compare/Contrast: Discuss the similarities and differences between a traditional Thanksgiving feast and a pizza feast!
