Fun Finger Play about this holiday’s most popular bird!
Mr. Turkey’s tail is big and wide
He swings it when he walks
His neck is long
His chin is red
And he gobbles when he talks
(open and close hands, and gobbles)
Here’s a fun song that my 3’s and 4’s love to sing:
Hello Mr. Turkey! (If You’re Happy and You Know It)
Hello Mr. Turkey, how are you? (clap, clap) Hello Mr. Turkey, how are you? (clap, clap) With a gobble, gobble, gobble and a wobble, wobble, wobble, Hello Mr. Turkey, how are you? (clap, clap)
A Thanksgiving Song
(tune: “Row, Row, Row Your Boat”)
The Pilgrims sailed away,
Far across the sea.
They came to America
So they could be free.
The Native Americans
Helped them plant the corn.
Then they shared a great big feast,
Thanksgiving Day was born!
I’m a Little turkey
I’m a little turkey
My name is Ted.
Here are my feathers,
here is my head.
Is what I say
Quick run.. It’s thanksgiving Day!
I’m A Little Turkey (sung to obviously “I’m A Little Teapot)
I’m a little turkey on a farm.
Here are my feathers, here is my beak.
When Thanksgiving comes I get real freaked, Please don’t eat me for your treat!
The kids really like this song…even though most of us do eat turkey for Thanksgiving…they think it’s funny.
