Storytime: Turkeys

Confession: I did this storytime back in November, but I allowed the dinosaurs to take over my blog for that entire month, so only now am I posting details from storytimes and other events that took place in November.

Opening Rhyme: Open them, Shut them

Book: Turk and Runt by Lisa Wheeler

Rhyme: Ten Fat Turkeys
Ten fat turkeys standing in a row,
They spread their wings and tails just so.
They strut to the left.
They strut to the right.
They stand outside in the bright sunlight.
Along comes the cooking looking for something to eat.
Run, little turkeys! Use your feet!

Book: Over the River: A Turkey's Tale by Derek Anderson

Song: "If You're Happy and You Know It"

Book: Sometimes It's Turkey, Sometimes It's Feathers by Lorna Balian

Rhyme: My Turkey
I have a turkey, big and fat.
He spreads his wings and walks like that.
His daily corn he would not miss,
And when he talks he sounds like this,
"Gobble, gobble, gobble."

Book: Too Many Turkeys by Linda White

Song: "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes"

Book: Turkey Trouble by Wendi Silvano

Goodbye Rhyme

Our craft was simple. I gave each child a pre-cut turkey body. They cut out feathers of various colors and glued them to the back of the turkey body. The most popular turkey feather colors were orange, green, blue, and purple.
