Teachers, do you want to get the giggles flowing in your classrooms this Thanksgiving? Nothing sparks a smile quite like saying the word, “Gobble!”
My children both loved this silly poem when they were younger. Preschoolers can act out the motions as they learn all about the funniest American with feathers.
A turkey is a funny bird,
Its head goes wobble, wobble,
All it knows is just one word,
“Gobble, gobble, gobble.”
Then once they’ve learned all about turkeys, it’s time to go on a turkey hunt!
Where is Mr. Turkey?
One player is the farmer and the others are helpers. When the farmer leaves the room, the helpers hide a small toy turkey. The farmer returns with a mission to find the turkey. Helpers give clues by “gobbling” like turkeys. If the farmer is far away from the turkey, the helpers gobble very quietly. As the hunter gets closer to the turkey, the helpers gobble will increase in volume until Mr. Turkey is found! Super cute!!
