pumpkin pie. They will also glue on cotton balls for whipped cream!

● The children will have their hand painted and stamped on paper to create a turkey

● The children will use stamps and stickers to decorate large paper to make a tablecloth for our thanksgiving celebration

● The children will crumple and stick yellow tissue paper to a green paper husk to make corn

 

We are singing:

Albuquerque Turkey By: The Learning Station (search on YouTube)

 

Funny Bird (to the tune of Pop Goes the Weasel)

A turkey is a funny bird

His head goes wobble, wobble

He knows just one funny word

Gobble, gobble, gobble!

 

Hello Mr. Turkey (to the tune of 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?

 

We are cooking/eating: Corn muffins! Image result for corn muffin images

 

In our sensory bin: An upside down strainer with a turkey face. The children will stick feathers into the strainer to create the turkey!

 

You can follow through with this theme at home by...

● Involving your child in simple cooking tasks at home (ex: mixing, mashing)

● Using vocabulary words listed above

● Reading Corduroy’s Thanksgiving

● Singing songs we are singing in class

● Talking about and practicing brushing your teeth

 

 

Have a great week!
