Thirty Days of Being Thankful - Day 25

Day 25
I am thankful for teachers.
In this case, it's the creativity they have given the children to express.  Here are some of Nathan's first grade class contributions on how to disguise a turkey...

I am not a turkey, I am a guinea hen.  Look at my spots.  Look at my horn.  You do not eat a guinea on Thanksgiving.

I am not a turkey.  I am an astronaut and I fly around in outer space without wings.

I am not a turkey.  I am a ballet dancer.  Look at my twirls and curtsys.  I dance like a swan. I have my crown and a tutu.

I am not a turkey.  I am a kitty cat.  Hear me purr and see my sharp claws.

I am not a turkey.  I am a blue Macaw.  Look at my blue feathers.  I fly around all day in the jungle looking pretty.

 I am not a turkey.  I am a cowboy.  I am also the sheriff.  I ride my horse around and save other people.

 I am not a turkey.  I am a dog.  Look at my tail and my spots.  I eat dog food.  It's yummy!  Why don't you try it?

I am not a turkey.  I am a bunny.  Look at my fuzzy, fuzzy white fur.  I like to eat carrots.  I like to hop around.

I am not a turkey.  I am a chicken.  I lay eggs in the grass.

I am Sparkle the ballerina.  I am going to perform in the Nutcracker ballet this Christmas.  I am so excited.

I am not a turkey.  I am a masked bandit.  If you try to eat me I will steal all of your money and jewels.

 I am not a turkey.  I am a soldier who saves the world.

I am not a turkey.  I am a goblin if you eat me you will die.  wahhah

I am Fuzzy the green fairy.  I will grant you three wishes, so do not eat me.  If you do your belly will feel grassy.

I am not a turkey.  I am an Endermen.  I move blocks all night long.  Stay away or I will drop a block on you.

I am a Power Ranger.  People should not eat me because I save people around the world.  For example, I am fireproof.  I saved a person who was sleeping.

 These are not turkeys, they are football players.

 I am not a turkey.  I am a spider.  If you try to eat me you will be hotter than lava from my really hot eyes.

 I am not a turkey.  I am dynamite.  I am an explosive.  If you bite me you will explode.  BOOM!  BOOM!  

 I am not a turkey.  I am an angler fish.  If you eat me then I will eat you!  I have a bright light and I have sharp teeth.  When you see me swim away!

I am not a turkey.  I am Pikachu.  Look at my long ears.  Look at my yellow body.  Look at my tail.  It is shaped like a lightning bolt.

I am not a turkey.  I am Santa Claus.  I am fat because I eat lots of cookies!

I love them all, but I am partial to the astronaut!  Which one is your favourite?

I liked them all. So cute. My favorite is the bunny. The other one that reminds me of my son when he was little is the Power Ranger one.

Have a great day!

I must admit that "I am not a turkey, I am a cowboy" is my favorite. These are wonderful!

How old are these kids? Amazing work. I like the guinea hen. He is very convincing. I think I can see why you like the astronaut!

Love them! They have quite the imagination.

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

I love them! I like the dog who gives advice on an alternative Thanksgiving Feast. I do think the child who disguised their turkey as a chicken might have missed the point of the exercise though! I also like Fuzzy the Green Fairy and her grassy tummy threat. Thanks for sharing.
