Some Families
Some families are large (arms out wide)
Some families are small (put hands together)

We Eat Turkey (Tune: Frere Jacques)
A great repeat after me song! First we went over the each food item (squash is the hardest, corn the easiest for this munkins) and I held up each card as we sang about it.

we eat turkeyWe eat turkey / We eat turkey
Oh so good / Oh so good
Always on Thanksgiving / Always on Thanksgiving
Yum, yum, yum / Yum, yum, yum

(repeat with mashed potatoes, corn, squash and pie)

Dinner’s over / Dinner’s over
We are stuffed / We are stuffed
What a great Thanksgiving / What a great Thanksgiving
Yum, yum, yum / Yum, yum, yum

1 Little, 2 Little
1 little, 2 little, 3 little fingers (count on fingers)
4 little, 5 little, 6 little fingers
7 little, 8 little, 9 little fingers
10 little fingers on my hands

They wiggle and they wiggle and they wiggle all together (wiggle hands)
They wiggle and they wiggle and they wiggle all together
They wiggle and they wiggle and they wiggle all together
10 little fingers on my hands

They clap and they clap and they keep on clapping
They clap and they clap and they keep on clapping
They clap and they clap and they keep on clapping
10 little fingers on my hands

Mr. Turkey
I have a turkey, big and fat (hold thumb up)
He spreads his tail and walks like that (spread fingers out on other hand behind thumb)
His daily corn he would not miss (have thumb “peck” at floor)
And when he talks, it sounds like this:
Gobble, gobble, gobble!

Turkey Hop by Carole Peterson

Book – Thank You, Thanksgiving by David Milgrim

If You’re Thankful and You Know It (Tune: If You’re Happy and You Know It)
If you’re thankful and you know it clap your hands
If you’re thankful and you know it clap your hands
If you’re thankful and you know and you really want to show it
If you’re thankful and you know it clap your hands

…stomp your feet
…shout I am!

One Whole Pie (Flannel Board)

One whole pie set by the door,
Cut into pieces,
I count four.

Four pieces of pie, all for me
I ate one piece (num, num, num)
Now there are three.

Three pieces of pie, for me too
I ate another piece
Now there are two.

Two pieces of pie, oh what fun!
I ate another piece
Now there is one.

One piece of pie, I can’t wait!
I ate that last piece,
Oh no…. empty plate!
