Word Turkeys

The 6 year old and I have been working on nouns, verbs, and adjectives for the past few weeks, and I have been struggling to come up with new and interesting ways for him to absorb this knowledge. So, while I was browsing the (FREE) Super Teacher Worksheets website, I came across a cool turkey template that I thought would be perfect!

I'm not sure what this worksheet was originally meant for, but I have tailored it for our own purposes.

I printed out 3 pages. 1 for noun, verb, and adjective. Then, I re-wrote the existing instructions (cut BEFORE coloring?? Really? I don't think so.) and had my son fill in holiday related words. We are doing 1 turkey a week and displaying them as Thanksgiving decorations. Pretty sweet, huh??

This is a great example of what I love most about homeschooling - the flexibility to find my own creative ways to demonstrate a topic.
