A game we played throughout November was called Alexander’s Turkey Likes…..
I would either give him clues such as “something yellow and bumpy”
or I would give him a list of food items such as “cranberries, potatoes and bananas”.
He would have to put them in the turkey’s tummy (on the plate) in the order I listed them in.
I plan to make a Christmas activity using the same idea, but challenging him with more complex clues, or a longer list of objects.
Something we do every November is make gratitude turkeys for a family night activity. It is a wonderful language activity, especially since we are working on subject and object pronouns and descriptive words. Conversations have gone as follows. “I really like Zachary’s turkey. He made a yellow, pointed beak on the turkeys face. His turkey looks happy! What can you tell me about your turkey?”
Hope you had a wonderful November!
