I think it's called the "Naked Turkey". I don't have the letter as I'm not doing it, but I've seen other posts about it- I'd search for that. I know there is a whole other website for this too

NOVEMBER






FAMILY HOMEWORK PROJECT

November 2009

Dear Families,

This Tom Turkey does not want to be eaten on Thanksgiving Day! Brainstorm together some fun ways to disguise him so the farmer can’t find him when it’s time for dinner. Be creative and use any materials you want. Then work together to write a few sentences about his disguise, and how he manages his escape! Some ideas include a snowman, a penguin, a princess, or a clown.

Please return your completed project by Monday, November 2nd. As with all our family projects, the students will each take a turn sharing their project with the class. Then these will be displayed on the bulletin board in the Kindergarten hall. Be sure to title your writing, for example: “The Shehan Family’s Princess Turkey.”

Have Fun!

The _______________________ Family’s
_______________________ Turkey

I call it Tom Turkey and he needs a disguise. I did have a letter, but just broke my flash drive. So, I will need to rewrite it. But basically I say that Tom Turkey doesn't want to be Thanksgiving dinner and he needs a disguise. Please help your child create a disguise for Tom, using any craft materials they have available. If they need any materials, I always offer for them to come in and go through what I have. Hope that helps!!

Here is a thread where people talked about this project. It has attachments of the turkey template and a parent letter.

This is a really fun family project. I have done it in previous years and the student get really creative. The Best part is that the family gets involved too.

Is this project appropriate for pre-K children. I have a mixed group of Kindergarten and pre-K children this year. I understand that this is a family project and the children work with their parents at home. Do you have the children write anything about their turkey?

Definitely appropriate for pre-K as a family project. My son is 4 and he would LOVE it.

When my students return their projects to school I have them write, "I am not a turkey. I am a ____________."

Here's one that I have used the past few years. You'll have to scroll a bit to find it, but it's super cute!
