We are on a turkey roll. We shared a fun turkey counting rhyme to use with play dough turkeys. Today, we are helping new readers learn number words.

This turkey counting book provides great reading practice to young readers. The text is repetitive with just the number word changing on each page.
It is also very interactive. On each page, kids can add the correct number of feathers to each turkey. Here are three feather ideas.
- Use the feathers that come with the book. Just cut them out from page 8. The kids can put them on and then take them off of each turkey.
- Use craft feathers.
- Draw and color the feathers on each turkey.
The last page provides one more opportunity to practice counting from 6-10. Kids can count the feathers in each row.
So, it’s time to print the book and have some gobble-gobble literacy fun!
