Turkey Trouble is an adorable story about a turkey trying to hide from being eaten!
In doing so, he disguises himself as other animals on the farm.
It is such a great book to make a fun preschool book activity to retell the story!
This month Lu from The Mamas Workshop and I were able to collaborate with TWO other creative bloggers for a preschool book activity.
This means you have FOUR different ways you can incorporate a story retell with your preschooler using Turkey Trouble by Wendi Silvano.
What is a Book Box?
A book box is a way to help your preschooler retell a familiar story. It has supplies that can act as props for story retells.

Props to retell the story
We LOVE book boxes, and Owl Babies makes another great book activity for November.
WHY Use a Book Box?
By Kindergarten, children will be asked to:
With prompting and support, retell familiar stories, including key details.
With prompting and support, ask and answer questions about key details in a text.
With prompting and support, identify characters, settings, and major events in a story.
No, thank you.
Build up your preschoolers confidence for when they have to meet these rigorous standards.

SETTING UP THIS PRESCHOOL BOOK ACTIVITY WAS SO MUCH FUN!
Draw the 6 main disguises on large kraft paper. – If you look closely at the animals, you will see that this took just a couple minutes to do.
Find a ball.
Glue a couple feathers to the ball so it will represent the turkey.
