A Yummy Thanksgiving Freebie

     We're getting ready for our big Thanksgiving Feast on Wednesday and we've been busy learning about the holiday, making decorations, and planning the menu. For the past few years, we've made these adorable turkey cookies to gobble up for dessert.  The kids love them and they're a lot of fun to make.
    This year, to make the experience more meaningful and to foster our emerging reading and writing skills, I've created some new literacy materials to go along with the project. There's a full-color shared reading book with step by step directions that I'll read before we make the cookies, and pocket chart pictures and a recipe card for the kids to refer to as they are making their turkeys.  Then, there are 2 b&w versions of the student recipe book for the kids to complete and bring home after we've made our cookies.  (Both have pictures of each step for the kids to color, but 1 has words and the other is wordless so the kids can write the steps for the recipe - great for differentiation!)  If you'd like to have some delicious Thanksgiving fun in your classroom this year, grab the recipe kit by clicking below the picture and enjoy!  I'd love to hear how they turn out! Have a great night!
