Sight Word Turkeys!   We make these adorable turkeys to assess our sight words!   I love this project because it’s such a cute assessment that’s fun for the kids but it also helps them see how important our sight words are.  We talk about  how we are thankful for the words we read!

These turkeys are available in my Gobble Gobble creation!
