Turkey Week 2017

This first week and second week in November, we will have turkeys, feathers and lots of ‘gobble, gobble, gooble’ at preschool. The kids will be painting our papier mache turkey at the art table, and they will be making their turkey handprints. In the sensory table there will be corn. We will be using the small and large tongs to find hidden items in the sensory table.   Tongs are a fun way to work on fine motor skills.
There will be farm animals at the play dough and in the sensory table. In the blocks area there will also be farm animals – both plastic and soft. We will have a special guest animal when we sing Old McDonald. Gobble, gobble, gobble.

Songs and Rhymes:
Funny Fellow
The turkey is a funny fellow, his head goes wobble, wobble.
He only says but just one word: gobble, gobble, gobble.

Hello Mr Turkey
Hello, Mr. Turkey how are you? Hello, Mr. Turkey how are you?
With a wobble, wobble and a gobble, gobble
Hello Mr. Turkey how are you?
(Good bye Mr. Turkey see you later.)

Mr. Turkey
Gobble, gobble, gobble, gobble says the turkey (3x)
Mr. Turkey gobble, gobbles and he wobble, wobble, wobbles.
Gobble, gobble, gobble says the turkey.

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