Brockbank first-graders recently finished reading the book, "Turkey Trouble" written by Wendi J. Silvano. In the story a turkey is in trouble, bad trouble, it is almost Thanksgiving and he is the main course. Farmer Jake is looking for him. Turkey has an idea what if he doesn't look like a turkey? What if he looks like another animal instead? First-graders then got to use their imaginations and pick a disguise for Turkey so Farmer Jake won't recognize him.

Adilyn Hanks picked a rabbit for her Turkey. She said on her paper, "I could be a rabbit. I could run. Hop, Hop," said the Turkey. "Oh!" said the farmer. "It must be a rabbit."

Beau Newitt picked a fox for her Turkey. She said, "I could be a fox. I could lick. Swish, Swish," said the Turkey. "Oh!" said the farmer. "It must be a fox."

Brianne Young picked a squirrel for her Turkey. She said, "I could be a squirrel. I could eat nuts. Crunch, Nibble," said the Turkey. "Oh!" said the farmer. "It must be a squirrel."

Bentley Briggs picked the President for his turkey. He said, "I could be the President. I could make rules. Don't Do That, Don't Do That," said the Turkey. "Oh!" said the farmer. "It must be the President."
