I ALWAYS love this writing activity. We talked about how this was a form of informational writing. They wrote the steps on how they would cook a turkey!!
After the read aloud, they began writing.
This was done as an interactive writing piece. A student would write the step on the chart paper while the rest of the class helped with the spelling and then wrote on their own copy.
We also made these cute coffee filter turkeys to add to our writing.
I'm not sure if I would want to eat turkey at their house. The cooking time ranged from 15 minutes to 87 minutes. I know I wouldn't want to spend the rest of my break off sick!!
