Transcript of The Turkey Shot Out of the Oven

The Turkey Shot out of the Oven by Jack Prelutsky The turkey shot out of the oven and rocketed into the air, it knocked every plate off the table, and partly demolished a chair. It ricocheted into a corner and burst with a deafening BOOM, then splattered all over the kitchen, completely obscuring the room. It stuck to the walls and the windows. It totally coated the floor; There was turkey attached to the ceiling where there's never been turkey before. It blanketed every appliance; it smeared every saucer and bowl. There wasn't a way I could stop it; that turkey was out of control. I scraped and I scrubbed with displeasure and thought with chagrin as I mopped That I'd never again stuff a turkey with popcorn that hadn't been popped. Vocabulary demolished (destroyed)
ricocheted (bounced)
obscuring (hiding)
appliance (small kitchen equipment)
chagrin (disappointment) The building was quickly _______________ by the construction workers. I went to Home Depot's ______________ department to look for a new microwave. The bouncy ball _______________ off every wall in the room before breaking Mom's favorite mug. I looked at my son with __________________ after he lied to me. He could tell there was no sense in ________________ the truth; Dad could always tell when he was lying. The building was quickly demolished by the construction workers.

I went to Home Depot's appliance department to look for a new microwave.

The bouncy ball ricocheted off every wall in the room before breaking Mom's favorite mug.

I looked at my son with chagrin after he lied to me.

He could tell there was no sense in obscuring the truth; Dad could always tell when he was lying. You will perform this poem, with expression and movements, on Tuesday, November 20. Evenly assign poem lines to your group members, starting with the title and poet's name. Pick a group of 3-5 people. Practice the lines until you know them by heart.
