No Turkeys Here

After seeing the cute disguised turkeys on other blogs, I finally gave it a try.  To get the students thinking of ideas, I read Piggie Pie by Margie Palatini and T'was the Night Before Thanksgiving by Dav Pilkey.  Then I sent a letter home explaining that the students wanted to save Tom Turkey from being eaten for Thanksgiving.

I had so many favorites for different reasons.  The most resourceful non-turkey was made from things found in the yard; gravels, leaves, and seeds.
Most Resourceful
The most original non-turkey was Sponge Bob.  I don't care for Sponge Bob, and the students know this.  Leave it to my students turn a turkey into an irritating sea sponge. LOL!
Most Original
The cutest non-turkey was Santa Turkey.
I think one of my students was still in the spirit of Veterans Day.  The most patriotic non-turkey was a soldier. We had just finished our Veterans Day unit and participated in our annual Veterans Day Parade.
Most Patriotic
Finally, my all-time favorite was the Carolina Tarheel non-turkey.  I don't know how they did it, but it looks like a Carolina napkin was folded into a jersey to fit Tom perfectly.  All Tom needs now are the Carolina pom-poms that decorate our ActivBoard.
