More Fun With Angry Turkeys
Last year at about this time I made turkey bean bags and used them in a toss game. I brought them out again for another round of Angry Turkeys. This game is made from toilet paper rolls and coffee can lids. I simply covered the toilet paper rolls to give them color. I improved it a bit by making the green pigs from paper rolls cut in half. I just printed clip art of a pig and taped it to the paper roll. This is what it looked like.
For the activity at school, I used Sounding board. It is a free app by Ablenet that allows you to make a communication board with pictures. I wasn’t able to share it so used the same pictures and converted it to Storykit. Here is the Storykit version. http://iphone.childrenslibrary.org/cgi-bin/view.py?b=nma32raqfbftw6v5g23r
The directions for the Turkey Bean bags are here.
The students placed the pigs in the proper spots while reading the story. They then all tossed a turkey on the count of 3. They always want to do it again. I love activities that are self reinforcing.
