Turkey Carols

Fourth graders have been creating Turkey Carols!


First, we talked about the words "tune" and "lyrics."


Next, we had a "Turkey Carol" sing-along as we looked at some examples. Then, students got with small groups and began to create their own. They picked a topic, chose a tune, and then got to work creating their own lyrics.



Finally they edited and wrote a final draft...


And performed them for the class:
