Turkey Texts Digital Writing Activity

Students will  have a BLAST with Turkey Texts which  is a Thanksgiving Digital Writing Activity that can be completed in Google Slides and PowerPoint


The Thanksgiving countdown is ON! Yesterday I sent all of my email subscribers this Digital Writing Activity called TURKEY TEXTS . If you aren't an email subscriber but are interested in joining, click HERE. You can also find this activity available in my TpT Store HERE.

This is a digital writing activity that can be completed in Google Slides™or PowerPoint. Students pretend that the cell phone belongs to a turkey and write a texting conversation between the turkey and any person/character of their choice. They will have to plan their conversation carefully in order to fit everything in the provided bubbles. Two different templates are provided: 5 texting bubbles vs. 6 texting bubbles. I have already typed the text in the first bubble to serve as the writing prompt but this can be deleted or edited to fit your needs. Here is an example of a completed texting exchange:

This activity can reinforce all sorts of different academic concepts! Some ideas include:
  • Creative Writing
  • Vocabulary in Context
  • Figurative Language
  • Writing with Voice
  • Point of  View
  • Context Clues
  • Grammar
You can assign this file individually for students to complete. Or you could duplicate the slides to make a collaborative presentation and assign each student their own slide to work on. They will have a BLAST reading through all of the conversations their classmates created!

Thank you to everyone who has been sharing pictures of your students completing their turkey texts. They are hilarious!! Here is just one example 😋


Have a wonderful, relaxing and SAFE Thanksgiving!
