We had another birthday today. She brought us Blow Pops that we enjoyed after school. We also did another Thanksgiving art project. First, they cut out the turkey's body. Then, they colored it. We discussed the waddle and the turkey's beak, and determined what color they should be. Then, we had to make the turkey's feathers. We used yellow, brown, orange, and red strips of paper to make the feathers. They glued the strips to the back of the turkey and then folded and glued them again to the back of the turkey. They turned out really great! Later in the day, we had study buddies with the 3rd graders. They played the game, "Roll a Turkey." The students rolled a numbered dice. Then, the 3rd graders looked on the instructions, and read what the number indicated they draw. For example, if they rolled a 4 that mean they should draw a feather or if they rolled a 6 that meant they should draw a foot. The first, person to complete the whole turkey won.
Happy Birthday A!
