Turkey’s Eggcellent Easter Activities

Turkey’s Eggcellent Easter Surprise brings back all the fun characters you love. This time Turkey wants to participate in an Easter egg hunt made just for kids. So, he quickly disguises himself to find the egg-stra special egg. I love to share this book in April the week of Easter. Turkey’s Eggcellent Easter Surprise activities include several comprehension strategies that you can use to differentiate for all your learners. There are also writing, word work activities as well as a few fun math games too. Students will have fun completing the turkey in a basket craft.  I have also included 2 letters per page to make a bulletin board display.
