Students will first look at their name on the turkey. This can be their guide for when they are spelling their name with the feathers.
Students will then choose feathers, one by one, and spell their name.
To complete this learning craft with older students, you can leave everything blank and have students write the letters on the feathers, where they can then build their thankful turkey craft without any guidance at all.
