Preschool Story Time, 11/21 (Thanksgiving Theme)

Opening Song: Hello, how are you? 

Song: Hello, Mr. Turkey

Song: Did You Ever See a Turkey?

Book: 'Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving by Dav Pilkey (1990)
This book is more silly than clever. I chose it because it was one of the few Thanksgiving books returned today, and I didn't want to repeat all my books from Saturday.

Song: This is the Way We... (Thanksgiving version)

Book: Thanksgiving Is Here by Diane Goode
This is a story about a family celebrating Thanksgiving at Grandpa and Grandpa's house. It starts out strong, but becomes boring as it literally narrates every moment of  the day.

Flannel Board Song: We Eat Turkey

Book: Giving Thanks by Chief Jake Swamp, illustrated by Erwin Printup, Jr. (2003)
This beautifully illustrated book contains the text of a "Native American Good Morning Message" translated to English from the language of the Mohawk. I was surprised that even with some of  the bigger words, the youngest kids seemed interested.

Rhyme: My Hands Say Thank You

Goodbye Song: We Wave Goodbye Like This
