So last week I did turkeys with the other kinder class. It must still be on their mind because I was dropping my kiddos off at lunch the other class yelled hi to me and one little one said, "Ms. T, you did chickens with us!" And I chuckled and corrected her that they were turkeys, but yes, I made turkeys with them.
First I tried using the copy machine to copy the turkey body on brown construction paper, but it wouldn't take it so I had to draw 53 turkeys!
Turkey body kids cut out.
Then I had them glue them on black construction paper.
And then the fun. The feathers!
I used all colors, even pink and purple. We were making fun turkeys!
I showed them that they could use just a little paper and still make feathers. And I told them they could cut or rip the paper with their hands. And reminded them to use glue with their song "Dot, dot, not a lot!" Then I said they could draw the eyes and the beak and even the wattle (aka as the red thingy lol). To finish it up, I said they got to do something very special and use white crayons for their names.
Here are some of the gobblers:
Um so she didn't follow dot, dot not alot! And can you tell they just went and saw Pinkalicious?
Mine! The kids all ooohed and ahhhhed hehehe :)
