Happy Thanksgiving

It's turkey time here in Canada.  The children are excited to spend time with family and friends this weekend to celebrate Thanksgiving.

After discussing everything we have to be thankful for, the children made a thankful tree table decoration.  I traced their hands and cut the handprints out of fall coloured construction paper to be the leaves for their tree.  Each child sat with me and dictated what they are thankful for and I printed it on each 'leaf'.  I folded the bag accordian style to create lines to follow when cutting.  Cut down the bag half way to create the branches for the tree.  Children stuffed a piece of newspaper into the bottom of the bag so it would stand up nicely then twisted the bag for the trunk and the cut strips for the branches.  We stapled our handprint leaves onto the branches.




I found this super cute footprint turkey craft on the Crafty Morning website and just had to do it with my crew!  



My crew did an amazing job on their turkey drawings!


Mrs. Duck and Mr. Turkey

Mrs. duck went to visit Mr. Turkey
And she walked with a wobble, wobble, wobble
She said, "How do you do?" to Mr. Turkey
And he answered with a, "Gobble, gobble, gobble!"


Always on Thanksgiving
Sung to "Frere Jacques"

We eat turkey, we eat turkey
Oh so good, oh so good
Always on Thanksgiving, always on Thanksgiving
Yum, yum, yum.  Yum, yum, yum.

Mashed potatoes, mashed potatoes
Oh so good, oh so good
Always on Thanksgiving, always on Thanksgiving
Yum, yum, yum.  Yum, yum, yum.

Yellow corn, yellow corn
Oh so good, oh so good
Always on Thanksgiving, always on Thanksgiving
Yum, yum, yum.  Yum, yum, yum.

Apple pie, apple pie
Oh so good, oh so good
Always on Thanksgiving, always on Thanksgiving
Yum, yum, yum.  Yum, yum, yum.
