One Week!


I can’t believe that Thanksgiving is just one week away.  I don’t know where November has gone!  I like to teach the grandchildren some fun songs, poems, and nursery rhymes about the holidays.  Here is one that I remember from when I taught school.

feeding the turkeys

Five big turkeys sitting on the gate
The first one said,  "It’s getting late."

Gobble, gobble, gobble
Fat turkeys, fat turkeys
Gobble, gobble, gobble
Fat turkeys are we.

The second one said,  "Who goes there?"


The third one said,  "There are farmers everywhere."


The fourth one said,  "Let’s run, run, run."


The fifth one said,  "It’s just Thanksgiving fun."


Five fat turkeys are we.
We slept all night in a tree.
When the cook came around,
We couldn’t be found,
And that’s why we’re here, you see.
