I read a Thanksgiving book to my kiddos called Turk and Runt.
This is a humorous story about a turkey saving his brother from becoming dinner. The students create these cute turkeys and name them.
Then they write an adventure for their turkey to star in. After a peer conference and editing session they take their stories to the computer lab and type them at ReadWriteThink.org. The stapleless book is then illustrated and stapled beside their turkey.
