Turkey Glyphs

Turkey Glyphs -                                           Glyphs can be used to address many speech goals. One good reason to complete a task like this is to get a spontaneous speech sample from your students to determine who they are carrying over their goals.

The students had a very good time with this glyph, from the planning stage to the final product. The feathers and googly eyes were the most fun part!

The students had to answer questions to gain the pieces to form the turkeys. We used a planning worksheet to fill in the answers. Then the pieces were assembled, and we went to work with the glue!

The next step was to turn our planning sheet into sentences to describe our turkeys. The younger students used Boardmaker Studio to create picture sentences. The older students completed an open-ended worksheet to create a description.

You can download the patterns here.
