On our way to our homeschool co-op we’ve been passing by a field that has been full of turkeys! Each time my daughter searches them out, so I created a fun turkey roll and count math game for fall that is perfect for working on counting during November. It goes great with our turkey unit study activities as well.
Materials Needed for the Turkey Roll and Count Math Activity:
To prep: Print and laminate the turkey feather roll and count mat (download below). You can also use a dry erase pocket to hold the mat if you can’t laminate it.
To use: Roll your die, write the corresponding number or number word with the dry erase marker and show the correct number of feathers. Super easy!
We love this fun set of foam dice from Lakeshore and Learning Resources has a similar set that would work great as well. I prefer these dice sets over a regular 6-sided die because you can practice more numbers by using a 10 or 20-sided die.
Feathers are so much fun to learn with!

If your child needs more of a challenge, use two dice, add them together and show the answer.
Pair this activity up with some fun turkey books for a math and literacy activity!
My daughter always loves reading the “There Was an Old Lady…” books! Every new season or holiday, we pull out one of the books and sing along!
