Thanksgiving Activity for Kids: Memorize a silly Turkey Song

It’s November, and Thanksgiving is a few short weeks away.  I just got back from teaching my daughter’s 1st grade class the “Turkey Song” this morning, and I’ve got an updated version to share with you today. I shared a print last year, then had my designer create a printable with extra images to make it more fun, with the same design as the “memorize” series I’ve shared in the past year. My kids LOOOOVE this song, we learned it from my 2nd songs kindergarden teacher. It’s quite catchy! It’s fun to sing in the weeks leading up to the Turkey Day, and on that day. If you have kids that are sensitive to eating animals, it might not be for them. I also read the book, Turkey Trouble {affiliate} to her class, and it has a similar theme, and is oh so fun! I love having a stack of holiday books to keep out for the kids to peruse.
