Turkey Tale: A Thanksgiving Draw and Tell

Soon it will be Thanksgiving in the U.S. of A! The Flannel Friday crew is having one of our famous Extravaganzas today (hosted by Amanda) and I'm sharing a favorite draw-and-tell story called "Turkey Tale." You can find it in Twenty Tellable Tales by Margaret Read McDonald.
The story begins: 
Once there was an old man and an old woman who lived in a round sod house by the side of a large round lake...

It ends with you having drawn a turkey! I promise that all the shapes in this are very simple.

Last year I shared my Turkey Feathers magnet board. If you're looking for Thanksgiving fingerplays, there are some really cute ones in Creative Resources for the Early Childhood Classroom


  1. I have been using this story for years! I have it printed out with the instructions drawn on it but I can't find it anywhere!! Any chance you can share the story with me?

    1. Send me an email: anne@sotomorrowblog.com and I'll see what I can do. Otherwise, the book may be available through interlibrary loan through your public library.
