Angry Turkeys is a game that can be adjusted for the needs of different groups of speech students. For my younger students it was a great way to review prepositions. For my older students it was just a good reinforcement activity with a November theme.
The toss game was originally based on the old app Angry Birds. except I renamed it Angry Turkeys. Students may not be as familiar with the app these days but that doesn’t really matter. Basically the app had pigs building stacked structures. The birds became objects to toss at them and break down the buildings when they hit.
I made turkey bean bags from scrap fabric I had on hand. The only other things you need are paper rolls and coffee can lids. I covered the paper rolls to give them color. I made the green pigs from paper rolls cut in half. I printed out clip art of a pig and taped it to the paper roll to represent the pigs.
The directions for the Turkey Bean bags are here.
I started the game by making towers with the paper rolls and lids. I then gave students the pigs and told them where to place them or they told other students where to place them. This gave them practice following instructions and using prepositions.
I then handed out the turkey bean bags. They all tossed one turkey on the count of 3 and hit the towers down. They almost always wanted to do it again. I love activities that are self reinforcing and encourage review.
