Tops and Bottoms Craft and Printables

 Looking for an adorable craft to go along with Tops and Bottoms by Janet Stevens?  You students can do both or pick a character to make.  Vegetable parts (edible and non-edible parts) are included to match with each character.  I created two resources on tpt... one with just the craft and another one with printable resources included.  some of the extra included resources are: sequencing cards and writing responses.  Here are some pictures to give you an idea of what's included:

 The Great Turkey Race 

Craft and Google Slides

We read these three books every year in November.  The kids get such a kick out of the characters:  Ollie, Cassie and Wing.

My friend, Meg, DREW the characters ... Can you believe she DREW them?!?!  When I draw I need to google "how to draw a turkey for kindergarten, simple" lol.  Check out how cute they look in the hallway.  Each kid had an option to make Ollie, Cassie, or Wing.  We have not done this craft yet, but every time we walk by her class on the way to lunch, my class always asks, "When are we making those?!?" 

 I keep telling Meg that the running puffs of smoke look like farts... what do you think?  'Leave your opinion in the comments.  HAHAH 😛

Head over to her TPT store to find out more about this craft:  The Suchoboky Store

💻Great Turkey Race - Digital Slides

Last year I created these google slides to go with the book The Great Turkey Race.  I didn't think that with Covid being "over" that I would ever use Google Slides again.  There are a few that I go back to, that I did not expect to... The Great Turkey Race being one of them.

Tops and Bottoms


Isn't this book just the cutest?  I created some google slide activities to go with it.  All the slides are geared towards building their comprehension (sequencing, comprehension quick check, character traits, using evidence, favorite part, cause and effect, opinion writing, text to self connections, and vegetable sorting)  

Click here to take you to my resource:

Here are some sample pics of the slides I created...

This is an amazing tool to have when planting seeds (TIP:  carrots take a long time to grow big, so do what I did... buy a carrot at the grocery store and throw it in towards the end! :). )

This is similar to the one I have on amazon.  Click on the product to bring you to the amazon link:
