Turkeys and a bit of October Art

Our Turkeys in Disguise project is due tomorrow, but we got a few in early!  The pictures below show the very beginning of our wall display and a few of the early birds :-)  Along with this family activity, we will have students complete a Don't Eat the Turkey Persuasive Writing assignment - created by my awesomely talented co-worker, Mrs. H.

Angry Bird

Fancy Lady

Futuristic Spider Man
They are coming out so cute!  I can't wait to see the rest tomorrow!

Here are a few October art projects and craftivities I did last month.  The bat acrostic poem template and bat craft came from Erica Bohrer's Batty for Bats unit.  My students had so much fun doing this! 

They also really enjoyed learning how to draw cats in pumpkins.  I used the step-by-step instructions from Kathy Barbaro.  She has amazing ideas for art projects on her blog Art Projects for Kids!

The bat drawing also came from Art Projects for Kids and Mrs. H. created the template for the bat couplet.  The kiddos had so much fun with one too!  The couplets were really fun too.  They enjoyed coming up with silly rhymes!
