There are some repeats on the feathers so tell them if they've already put a "c" (for example) on the -at body, they need to find another place to put it. If they've done it correctly, I wouldn't worry if they end up with 4 feathers on one turkey, and 8 on another. If you think they're ready you could turn it into a puzzle and challenge them to make it work with exactly six feathers on each turkey. You could also substitute more advanced word families. Enchanted Learning has a great list. To modify it for younger kids, you could do rhyming words or same beginning sound words or even matching colors or letters. Hope you have fun with it!
