Rhyme: "The Turkey"
 
The turkey is a funny bird (hook thumbs together and spread fingers for a "tail")
Its head goes wobble, wobble, (wobble your head from side to side)
It loves to use its favorite word -  
It’s "gobble gobble gobble"! (make a "gobble gobble" sound!)

Song: "Let's Be Thankful"
Sing to the tune of "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star."
 
Let's be thankful for this day,  
For our friends and our play.  
Let's be thankful; let's be glad,  
For our food and the things we have.  
Let's give thanks for you and me,  
And our home and family.
