IT’S HARD TO BELIVE BUT…..IT’S TIME FOR THANKSGIVING SONGS!
I”ll be honest – I find November a little hard to lesson plan for. We wrap up Halloween, flip the calendar from October to November, and it just seems too early to launch right into all things Thanksgiving. Right? But then…. one week goes by and seems like we’re practically out of time to get any projects done for the holiday!
Our song/video last week was Together & Apart (did your little ones like it?!), and it’s the way that I begin talking about Thanksgiving without really talking about it – by focusing on Togetherness. But now? Now my friends, we’ve made it through the first week, the intensity of this year’s election, and now I turn my thoughts to: TURKEY!!! LOL!
THIS WEEK’S VIDEO IS…
A TURKEY IS A SILLY BIRD!
I have to say, that over the years I have found Thanksgiving songs hard to come by. There’s really just a handful of them. I, and many other of my Kids Music friends, have written songs about gratitude and being Grateful, but there are just a few easy-to-sing, easy-to-remember Circle Time Thanksgiving songs. This one is my absolute favorite. I learned it from my niece, Maya (who is nearly 18 now!) when she was about 3 years old. A TURKEY IS A SILLY BIRD is a simple, short and silly song. The three S’s that kids love!
EARLY LEARNING CONCEPTS CHILDREN WILL GET FROM THIS VIDEO…
- Children will learn some very simple and fun facts, that a Turkey is a bird and it makes the sound “Gobble Gobble” which is really fun to say and great sound for our little ones who are developing their speech and language skills.
- They will experience changes in tempo and practice body and speech control as they learning to sing the song slow, a little bit faster and a little bit faster!
- This song is short and easy to learn and, therefore it is easy to repeat it several times. Rhyme and repetition are some of the best tools for speech and language development!
