This story is great for looking at cause and effect and problem and solution. We created a multi-flow map to show cause and effect. We also used it to talk about what Turkey's problem was and how he solved it. I got the paper plate turkey Santa idea from my teammate Nicole. We used "fancy" scissors to cut the turkey waddles and the hat fur. My kids thought this was the greatest! I am not sure about some of these hats though. Lol. Click here for a Turkey Claus Freebie.
We reread 10 Trim-the-Tree'ers today. Then we retold the story using picture cards, numbers, and five frames. You can get the 10 Trim-the-Tree picture cards and numbers here.
