Tom Turkey

Our class has read several Thanksgiving books this month during our teacher read aloud time. Our favorite book, however, was ‘Twas The Night Before Thanksgiving by Dav Pilkey. In this story, children visit the turkey farm of Farmer Mac Nugget. They are appalled when they find out that the cute little turkeys they see walking around will soon end up on someone’s table for Thanksgiving dinner. Our writing assignment this month was to pretend that each student was Tom Turkey and had to plea with Farmer Mac Nugget about why turkeys shouldn’t be eaten anymore. I wanted to give my students a creative way to let out their comical side. Hope you enjoy their writing and, as always, feel free to leave a positive comment. Be sure to listen to the story! It is very cute.
