Turkey with the Terrible Temper

Turkey with the Terrible Temper - How the Turkey Got His Tail Feathers
Turkey with the Terrible Temper
The story of how the Turkey got is Tail Feathers is an excellent way to talk about emotions. The author of the following story is unknown. Each year I read the story and showed a set of turkeys colored to match the events that were happening. At the end I provided each student with a copy of black line master turkeys for them to color so that they could practice retelling the story. Another way to use this story especially for students that are less verbal is to have them hold up the turkey that is the color of the emotion they feel at that moment. This will help them identify their own emotions. You could also have a class activity where students show a specific emotion guided by the teacher and the kids hold up the turkey they think the student is representing.

  1. Great idea! I just checked out the book a little and really like it. It seems like a great way to teach and talk about emotions.
