Do you want to roll a Turkey?
Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. It is fun to teach children about the history of thanksgiving, and it is also fun to make turkeys (and maybe even disguise them!). Lastly, it is fun to hear what children are thankful for. Today I want to know… do you want to roll a Turkey? I hope you want to roll a turkey because I think it will be a lot of fun! First, here are my favorite Thanksgiving books!

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.
Thank you for your offerings of downloads, we really enjoy them and they are very helpful. I downloaded this roll a turkey game but I can’t figure out how to edit it. Is there a special font I need to download to do that?
Hi there, Sorry for any confusion and thank you for your question. I think on like the third or fourth page there is a page of dice and then also turkeys that are black. You should be able to actually type in each dice a word or a letter, or a number or whatever. When you type in the word on the dice, it will also show use on the other dice (the one you fold and glue together/make). If you have trouble with this, let me know… perhaps I did something wrong and I’ll fix and make sure people know! (You can always email me at [email protected], or write a comment here and I will get it and respond!)
You are so welcome! Have fun!
I would love to use this in my classroom.
