Storytime - Thanksgiving

Toddler

Books


Songs / Rhymes: “Good Morning”, “Hello, How Are You?”, “Did You Ever See a Turkey”, “Open, Shut Them”, “Hello, Mr. Turkey”, “Turkey Feathers” on the felt board, “I Wiggle My Fingers”, and “The More We Get Together”.

Craft: Pumpkin Pies. Materials: tan construction paper crust, cotton balls, paper plate quarters, cinnamon, crayons, glue, and tape. The toddlers glued their crusts to their pie wedge, then added whipped cream (the cotton balls). When they were done, they added a bit more glue and I sprinkled some cinnamon on their pies.







Preschool

Books

*The felt board set used to be free, but now you can download it for $5 from Teachers Pay Teachers.

Songs / Rhymes: “Welcome to the Library”, “Hello, How Are You?”, “Hi There, So Glad You Came”, “Open, Shut Them”, “Hello, Mr. Turkey”, “The Turkey Feathers Game” on the felt board, and “The More We Get Together”.

Special Activities: We played the Turkey Feathers Game on the felt board. I had the children guess which color of feather was missing from the turkey. I also explained that Chanukah starts the same day as Thanksgiving, and she showed them how to spin the dreidel. Each preschooler took a turn spinning it.

Craft: Thankfulness Chains. Materials: red, orange, yellow, green, and brown construction paper strips, glue, tape, crayons, and scissors. The preschoolers thought about what they were thankful for. Their caregivers wrote the suggestions on the strips and together they formed the strips into chains.



Songs/Rhymes
Did You Ever See A Turkey?
Sung to: "Did you ever see a Lassie"
Did you ever see a turkey a turkey a turkey
Did you ever see a turkey go this way and that
Go this way and that way and this way and that way
Did you ever see a turkey go this way and that?

Hello Mr. Turkey 
Sung to: "If You're Happy and You Know It"
Hello, Mr. Turkey, how are you?
Hello, Mr. Turkey, how are you?
With a gobble, gobble, gobble,
And a wobble, wobble, wobble.
Hello, Mr. Turkey, how are you?
