Making Turkey Predictions

Today we read the book Turk and Runt by Lisa Wheeler.  This is one of my favorite Thanksgiving books to read.  It was not long after starting the book that it became one of our first graders favs too. We read the whole book about this turkey trying to save his brother from getting eaten for Thanksgiving until the last page, then I had them predict what they thought Runt was going to do to save his family from getting eaten for a Christmas dinner.  Some of their predictions are below.  As it turns out the family dresses up like snowmen to disguise themselves when people come to the turkey farm looking for a plump turkey.  It was very fun to share their predictions and see how they related to the book's ending.
