Turkey Time!

Wow!  This week flew by.  It's already Friday, again and time for Doodle Bug's Teaching Five for Friday.

This is our door.  Each little one decorated a feather.  I found the huge wiggle eyes at Michaels.  The waddle is a red feather boa.

We basted turkeys!  I cut turkeys out of foam from an Ellison die, gave the littles some water and a pipette. 
They had so much fun.  It was great fine motor work, too.
We made these adorable turkeys!  The pattern was a freebie from Doodle Bugs Teaching.  I love, love, love how they turned out.

I am taking a math class and had to make a connections game according to preschool/kindergarten CCSS.  I chose to make a memory match type game using 3D objects.  There are directions allowing for differentiation.  Click HERE to grab your copy.


I am SO nervous!  For the second time ever in my life I will be responsible for the turkey.  If you have any tricks and tips for cooking a good bird, please let me know.  :)

Thanks for reading!  Have a good day!
