By Peggy C. Agee, CCC-SLP
Illustrated by Shelley Davis
The cook is looking for a turkey to put in his pot. Run, Turkey! Run, Turkey! Run! Run! Run!
Mr. Turkey finds hiding places all over the farm - and always just one step ahead of the cook. Prepositions are delightfully highlighted while children are given multiple opportunities to join the fun. Simple, repetitive text and colorful illustrations will keep children engaged and asking for this delightful story again and again.
Run, Turkey, Run! includes two great manipulatives:
- Stick Puppet Patterns to encourage role playing and reader's theatre.
- Preposition Storycards to reinforce concepts and extend the story.
