Jaide brought home a book the other day called "How to Make a Turkey" It was made up of pages that the kids in her class filled in. Here was Jaide's page
How to Cook a Turkey
I will get the turkey from the turkey bag
It will look flat, cold and no bones.
It will feel like bones and bumpy
It will weigh 40 pounds
I will pay 41 cents for it.
I will cook it by my mom and put salt and water on top.
It will cook for 41 hours.
I will serve soup and salad with my turkey.
I think this is how you cook a turkey!
Some of the other highlights included:
I will get the turkey from: the farm with the cows, Elmo at the turkey store, the chicken store in the mall, Chick-fil-a.
It will look: like a ham that's skin color, like a circle with legs, like a dead turkey, like a pig, like zigzags on its back and four legs.
It will feel: sometimes soft and hot when it burns, cold and warm and hot, cold and real, hot and heavy, furry.
It will weigh: 100,000,000 ounces, two weeks, this many.
I will pay: $1000, 23 cents, $1
I will cook it by: take off the feathers, kill it with a knife and cook it where the pans are; the left and then to the right; lighting the grill; just put it in the oven, let it bake and when it comes out you have chicken; the stove and use special gloves so your hands don't burn.
It will cook for: 2 minutes, 5 seconds, 100 seconds, 15 hours
I will serve___ with my turkey:
sauce, peppers, and bananas
chicken and toasted cheese and maybe a sandwich
lemons and blueberries and salt and oranges
mac and cheese and water
regular meat and chicken
lemonade and a cookie with icing
baked beans, hot dog and popcorn
