Happy November! In honor of TURKEY month, I have a FUN and EAAAASY little activity for you. Have your students practice the 5 W's with this Turkey Tales project.



Download the free iPad app, Hand Turkey. Have your students create a turkey and save it to the camera roll.






Students simply place their hand on the iPad screen to create their hand turkey. They will then have the option to customize and name their turkey.




Students can have fun watching their turkey rake leaves and watch a turkey stampede. This will help provide a mental image that will hopefully motivate them to write a creative story about their turkey.

Students will use the hand turkey graphic organizer that is included in this pack to brainstorm the 5 Ws of their story:
Next, students will write their story using the stationery that is included (two different kinds of lined stationery come in this pack in case you have students that struggle with handwriting):
Hold up for a sec! Aren't these TURKEY iPads the absolute cuuuuuuuutest??? I have to thank Erin Flanagan for these. You can grab her FREE seasonal iPad clipart in her store by clicking {HERE}.

After stories have been crafted, students can upload their turkey screenshot into an app like Educreations, ShowMe, StoryKit, Book Creator, Chatterkid (30 second limit), or Tellagami (free version has a 30 second limit) and read their story.

Here is an example I made in Chatterkid. I had to talk FAST to get all 5 of my Ws in!

    1. I would use it with 2nd or 3rd grade but could be easily adapted for younger and older students. Virginia is not Common Core so I'm not sure exactly which CCSS strands it would meet. Anything about the writing process, story elements and main idea/details.
