The Turkey is a Funny Bird
The turkey is a funny bird
Its head goes bobble-bobble;
And all he knows is just one word...
And that is GOBBLE-GOBBLE!
Five Little Turkeys
This math song works for so many different holidays and themes. Have your kids use their hands to show how many turkeys for each line.
Five little turkeys by the barn door,
One waddled off, and then there were four.
Four little turkeys sitting under the tree,
One waddled off, and then there were three.
Three little turkeys with nothing else to do.
One waddled off, and then there were two.
Two little turkeys sitting in the sun,
One waddled off, and then there was one.
One little turkey - better run away!
Soon it will be Thanksgiving Day.
I’m a Little Turkey
A fun Thanksgiving song- sung to the tune of “I’m a Little Teapot.”
I'm a little turkey, Short and fat. (Round your arms at your sides and bend your knees to squat down)
Thanksgiving is coming,
Now what do you think of that? (Hold your hands up and shrug)
I had better run as fast as I can. (Move your arms in a running motion)
Or Mommy will roast me in a pan!
One Little, Two Little, Three Little Turkeys
The original lyrics to this song are… “One little, two little, three little Indians…” It is a fantastic counting song and you can change the lyrics to whatever works for you… “Native Americans”, “Turkeys”, “Feathers”.
One Little, two Little, three little turkeys
Four little, five little, six little turkeys
Seven little, eight little, nine little turkeys
Ten little turkeys GOBBLE, GOBBLE, GOBBLE!
I’m Glad I’m Not a Turkey
Thanksgiving Songs sung to the tune of “Frere Jacque”
I eat Turkey. I eat Turkey.
If You're Thankful and You Know It.
