Storytime Week 1 1/2: Thanksgiving
Ms. Eileen and I have decided to do storytimes until the week of December 12. Note the schedule on the right side of this page. Most storytime sessions will NOT meet this week...Thanksgiving week...HOWEVER, I can't bear to go yet another week without seeing my storytime friends, so I'll do a Monday morning 10:00 group. Again, this is the usual scheduled Monday 2 year old group, but I'll leave it open to any Thursday attendee as well.
So, for this one time only storytime we'll focus on Thanksgiving. Boy, don't we have a lot to be thankful for!

This Week's Action Rhymes:
1 The turkey's tail is wide and big
He swings it when he walks
His neck is long, his chin is red
He gobbles when he talks!
2 One fine Thanksgiving Day
Two little turkeys came out to play
One turkey says, "We'll play hide-and-seek,
I'll go hide, and you don't peek"
Will he hide high, will he hide low
Will he hide far, I don't know
Will he hide left, will he hide right
Or will he hide back out of sight?
The other little turkey then looks around
But his turkey friend can't be found
Did he hide high, did he hide low
Did he hide far, I don't know
Did he hide left, did he hide right
Or did he hide back out of sight
"Aha, I found you! Come on out!"
"Gooble Gooble Gooble!" both turkeys shout.
A Flannel Board Game:
Turkey wore his red feather, red feather, red feather.
Turkey wore his red feather, all day long!
(Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple)
Last line: Turkey wore his rainbow feathers, rainbow feathers, rainbow feathers. Turkey wore his rainbow feathers, all Thanksgiving long!
This Week's Art/Craft: A turkey hat!
