Happy Thanksgiving!

We're celebrating "Turkey Day" by writing LIMERICKS! After "wetting" my students' appetite about a turkey named "Bert" --who was young, foolish and didn't listen to his elder turkey-friend about how to save his life by doing the "turkey dance" (see video below) for the King and Queen --I explained Bert's downfall and, more specifically, how he became my Thanksgiving dinner! It's my clever way to get young 'uns to listen to their elders...part Aesop my own zaniness! I end the story with a cliff-hanger, the students rapt at attention regarding what happened to Bert. When I've prolonged it time enough, I transition to this limerick below to satiate their "literary thirst!" :) There once was a turkey named Bert, Who thought himself a flirt. He played with his life and met a sharp knife. Now he's the source of my burp! :) Scholastic has this interactive online game for writing lime
