HOW TO COOK A TURKEY

Some of you might remember this post from last November. I've updated it and added a free download. :)



November means fall leaves, football, cranberry sauce, pilgrims, Native Americans, pumpkin pie and TURKEY!  In my first grade classroom we make a bulletin board for Thanksgiving.  I have a parent helper take each student one by one and ask them how they would cook a turkey if they had to make it for their family for Thanksgiving.  The parent types EVERYTHING that the student says.  The parent also has a list of prompts if the student cannot think of what to say (how long do you cook it, where do you cook it, do you put anything inside of it, how much do you need to make, etc- I give the parent helper a checklist of things just in case).
I then print them off and the students get to read it to the class (with my help). Afterward, they decorate their border and we post them on the bulletin board:


They are HILARIOUS!  Here is an example:

"First you go to Smith's down the street and buy a big turkey.  Take it home and rip off the plastic and pull all that yucky stuff out of the middle of it.  I think you are supposed to put something inside of the turkey, but I'm not sure what it's called.  Turn the oven on to hot.  It's 100 degrees hot.  Make sure you check the oven a lot because my mom burned one last year.  When it's done it will be brown and you can take it out to eat.  Put salt and pepper on it.  I do like turkey on Thanksgiving Day, but I like chocolate pie better."


For the bulletin board I made a turkey out of butcher paper, the serving dish out of tin foil, and the garnishments are fake ivy leaves.

 

If you don't want to have a parent helper type up what they say, you can make it into a writing activity.
In this download, I've included a younger grade version, older grade version, and a blank version if you want parents to type up what the child says.

Hilarious... I love it! Thank you for sharing...I can't wait to see what my kinders will come up with!

Oh I can't wait to ask the kids how they cook a turkey. I think I'll ask my aide to do it. Many of my kids probably have no clue, so their responses should provide some laughs. I have a friend who has the kids write the step, so I'll pass the worksheet along to her. Thanks for sharing!

This is a great idea, but for those that don't have parents that can come and type, they could record their story on the computer, on a cassette tape, or even better on a smart phone, iPod Touch or an iPad. Then the parent, assistant or teacher could type them up from the recordings at a later time. If you have an iPad2, you can download the free app, Dragon Dictation and the child can record it and it types it as they speak! Gotta' love technology! (as long as it's working, that is.)

cooking and stitching are a very excellent activity for women some women stitched girls' shirts, caps and Leggings for Girls cooking may be very intimidating, but shouldn’t be! So a good deal amusing whilst you just analyze a few fundamentals. Had to pause for a chunk to get my lower back heading in the right direction work-sensible after Covid hit, but stay tuned.

Hy.Natural herbs have cured so many illness that drugs and injection can’t cure. I've seen the great importance of natural herbs and the wonderful work they have done in people's lives. i read people's testimonies online on how they were cured of HERPES, HIV, diabetics etc by Dr Edes herbal medicine, so i decided to contact the doctor because i know nature has the power to heal anything. I was diagnosed with Herpes for the past 3 years but Dr Edes cured me with his herbs and i referred my aunt and her husband to him immediately because they were both suffering from Herpes but to God be the glory, they were cured too .I know is hard to believe but am a living testimony. There is no harm trying herbs, Thanks.digital marketing
