Flannel Friday – Thanksgiving Edition: We Eat Turkey

It has been a while since I did a Flannel Friday post, but it seems fitting to do one for Thanksgiving, because I am thankful Flannel Friday led me to blogging!

This tasty song includes all the delectable things we eat for dinner on Thanksgiving.  I don’t know where I got the song, I think it was passed down from my mom’s files. And after doing a google search,I know it’s been included in a previous Flannel Friday (check it out on Story Time Secrets), but here’s my take on it.

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

Repeat the song with other foods including: mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, cranberries, sweet potatoes, and pie.

I like to do this as a sing and repeat with my groups.  I sing one line, and they sing it back to me.  I also start with my flannelboard empty, and only put on the food we are singing about.  When we start another verse, I bring out the food from behind the flannelboard and ask “What food is this?”  The green beans and the cranberry sauce always throw the kids, but they join in the singing once they learn what they are.  You also can open it up at the end by asking kids what their favorite Thanksgiving foods are and singing about those!
