Songs and Fingerplays:

Here Is the Turkey

Here is the turkey
(fist of one hand)
with his tail spread wide.  
(place fist against outspread palm of other hand)
He sees the farmer coming so he tries to run and hide.  
(lower hands to side of body)
He runs across the barnyard- wobble, wobble, wobble.  
(make hands "wobble")
And he says out loud,
"Gobble, gobble, gobble."

We Eat Turkey
sung to: "Are You Sleeping"
We eat turkey.
We eat turkey.
Yum, yum, yum.
Yum, yum, yum.
Always on Thanksgiving.
Always on Thanksgiving.
Oh, so good.
Oh, so good.  

We eat mashed potatoes.
We eat squash.
We eat pie.
(What else do the children eat?)
