Poppins Book Nook- Animal Theme


The theme for this months Poppins Book Nook was animals.  Since we were learning about Thanksgiving this month, I decided to go with a turkey for our animal.

Fun With Turkeys

We used a few different books to go with our theme.  We read “A Turkey for Thanksgiving” by Eve Bunting, which is a super cute story!  Then we read 2 non-fiction books- “All About Turkeys” by Jim Arnosky and “Turkeys that Fly and Turkeys That Don’t” by Allen Fowler.  We learned so much from those 2 books!

Fun With Turkeys

As we read the non-fiction books about turkeys, we added feathers to this turkey.  Each feather has an interesting fact about turkeys.

I had Hailey write in her journal pretending to be a turkey and giving reasons why she should not be eaten for Thanksgiving dinner.

We also made some turkey crafts, you can see the full post here.  These are the cute hats we made.
