{{{ I Am Thankful for Turkey Freebies! }}}

Today I'm linking up with Blog Hoppin.
I hope that you are off today. If not, perhaps these freebies will come in handy for you this week. Enjoy!

This little cutie is available as a gif from 
XOXO Kindergarten.

I used it to make a shell game that we do often to practice our sight words. 

  I picked up a couple of packs of colorful take out boxes from the party section of Dollar Tree. (You can also use large cups.) I cut off the top flaps of the boxes, turned them over, then added our sight words to six turkeys and wa-lah!...we were in business for a shell game. Oh, and I borrowed the little turkey from the teacher next door...thanks Donna! You can put anything fun underneath...Beanie Baby turkey, pumpkin eraser, mini gourd, colorful real leaf etc. etc. This game is a fave for my kinders.
Unlike the classic game where the "shuffler" tries to trick the "guessers", we don't shuffle. Instead we work on memory and reading. Guessers must read the word aloud before the box is lifted. 

Thank you to Rebecca at Teaching First and Mrs. Ricca's Kindergarten for these two turkey freebies.
Click on each, and the link will take you to the site where you can download them.
(hint: download the preview for this game)

I'll see you tomorrow for "H".
