"Turkey Trouble" by Wendi Silvano


“Turkey is in trouble. Bad trouble. The kind of trouble where it's almost Thanksgiving . . . and you're the main course. But Turkey has an idea what if he doesn't look like a turkey? What if he looks like another animal instead? After many hilarious attempts, Turkey comes up with the perfect disguise to make this Thanksgiving the best ever!”

Can You Show Me…?

(Tune: “Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush”)


Can you show me the red turkey?

Red turkey, red turkey?

Can you show me the red turkey?

And wave her in the air?


Yellow… black… brown… orange



Hold It High – Choose one turkey from handouts

Hold your turkey high and stand

Now wave it around in gestures grand!

Hold your turkey below your chin

Now hold it way up high again


Hold your turkey against your nose

Now touch the turkey to your toes

Touch your turkey to the ground

Now wave that turkey all around!


Hold your turkey in front of you

Now turn around – one time, two!

Hold your turkey and jump up high!

Now let your turkey fly fly fly (throw it in the air)

BOUNCE RHYME (bounce along with child in lap)


If You’re Thankful and you Know It

(Tune: “If You’re Happy and You Know It”)


If you’re thankful and you know it, bounce up high!

If you’re thankful and you know it, bounce up high!

If you’re thankful and you know it,

And you really want to show it.

If you’re thankful and you know it, bounce up high!


If you’re thankful and you know it, rock side to side

If you’re thankful and you know it, bounce real fast!

If you’re thankful and you know it, bounce... real... slow...

If you’re thankful and you know it, blow a kiss!



ACTION RHYMES


Albuquerque The Turkey

(Tune: “Clementine”)


Albuquerque, he’s my turkey,

and he’s feathered and he’s fine

and he wobbles and he gobbles

and I’m awfully glad he’s mine.


He’s the best pet you could ever get

better than a dog or cat

Albuquerque, he’s my turkey

and I’m awfully glad of that.


Albuquerque, he’s my turkey

he’s so cozy in his bed

because for our Thanksgiving dinner

we ordered pizza instead!



I’m a Little Turkey

(Tune: “I’m A Little Teapot”)


I’m a little turkey,

My name is Ted.

Here are my feathers, here is my head

Gobble, gobble, gobble, is what I say

Quick! Run! It’s Thanksgiving Day!



Turkey in the Straw

(Tune: “Skip to My Lou”)


Turkey in the brown straw, ha, ha, ha,

Turkey in the brown straw, ha, ha, ha,

Turkey in the brown straw, ha, ha, ha.

Turkey in the straw, my darling.


Turkey in the white snow, ho, ho, ho,

Turkey in the white snow, ho, ho, ho,

Turkey in the white snow, ho, ho, ho.

Turkey in the snow, my darling.


Turkey in the blue sky, hi, hi, hi,

Turkey in the blue sky, hi, hi, hi,

Turkey in the blue sky, hi, hi, hi.

Turkey in the sky, my darling.


Turkey in the yellow corn, horn, horn, horn,

Turkey in the yellow corn, horn, horn, horn,

Turkey in the yellow corn, horn, horn, horn.

Turkey in the corn, my darling.


Turkey in the green tree, hee, hee, hee,

Turkey in the green tree, hee, hee, hee,

Turkey in the green tree, hee, hee, hee.

Turkey in the tree, my darling.



Did You Ever See a Turkey?

(Tune: "Did You Ever See a Lassie?")


Did you ever see a turkey, a turkey, a turkey,

Did you ever see a turkey run this way and that?

Run this way and that way

And on Thanksgiving Day!

Did you ever see a turkey run quite that fast?
