Where do turkeys sleep? What do turkeys eat? Can baby turkeys fly? These are all great questions asked by my kinder students over the years. To help answer these questions, you can read turkey stories, guide your students to research turkeys online, and present this 10 Turkey Facts anchor chart found in my Building Sentences: All About Turkeys resource.
After presenting the anchor chart above, and exposing students to informational text about turkeys, simply print the Building Sentences pages, and model how to complete the activity.
- Read the turkey fact.
- Cut the scrambled word tiles on the bottom of the page, and paste them in the correct order to build the turkey fact.
- Draw a picture to supply details about the turkey fact.
For your more advanced learners, the "above level", or level 2, worksheets do not have the sentence printed along the top. Students use syntax skills to construct a grammatically correct sentence using the word tiles at the bottom of the page.
This no-prep center is engaging, promotes reading and writing, and supports Informational Text common core standards. Great for whole class, small groups, language arts centers, word work, daily 5, guided reading, tutoring support, and homework.
