If you know me, you know I love cut and paste activities! Keeping with that theme, today we have a “Make a Turkey” Worksheet pack. If you want an alternative to the cut/paste activity, another great fine motor activity is to make a turkey out of stickers! I always order stickers like this for the kids. I even enjoy doing them. (Shhh, don’t tell the kids I may sneak a few after bedtime!) Anyway, here are some books we love to read around Thanksgiving time.

Make a Turkey Activity
So… your Make a turkey Activity includes one set of worksheets that have the color by code in them and then another set that are just plain and you can color them whatever way you want. ( I love color by code activities too..so, this activity pack has both!) These are great worksheets to help a child with cutting skills. For some children, though, cutting all those feathers may be pretty challenging. You may want to cut out the feathers “loosely” and then have the little ones fine tune them…What great fine motor practice!

Madreen Karle is a master first grade reading teacher with over 30 years of classroom experience. She taught reading in a special needs and English as a Second Language classroom. After retiring she wrote a reading program to help others learn how to teach reading. She is a trusted educator and author of 5 books to help teach children to read and write. In addition to her books, she is a mentor for 3 websites that give reading teacher tips (Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound Reading, Mrs. Karle’s Reading Patch, and Mrs. Karle’s Handwriting Patch). Through her teaching she learned that confidence was the key to learning to read. A child who is not confident at reading does not like to read and struggles to read. Mrs. Karle created “sunshine moments” to help teach children how to grow their confidence and learn to read.
Meeghan Karle Mousaw (Madreen’s daughter) has her Master’s in Special Education. She has 8 years experience teaching children to read online. In addition, she developed a curriculum to teach children handwriting called The Handwriting Patch. With the Handwriting Patch learning is fun because children learn to draw and learn handwriting at the same time. In 2019 The Handwriting Patch curriculum became an amazon best seller the first year it was released, helping thousands of kids learn handwriting with a unique, fun method. She is mom to 6 kids, each with differently learning abilities and struggles.
The Reading Patch was established by the creators of Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound Reading. Together they have been featured on the NBC media outlets and Parents Magazine online. Over the last 8 years in their online platform, Madreen and Meeghan have worked tirelessly with teachers, homeschoolers and parents looking to help children learn to read to become a trusted authority in teaching children to read and advocating early literacy skills. They often partner with other educational experts to deliver the most current information to the Reading Patch community.
