With our friends at story time,
We clap and sing hello!

Wave and sing hello
Stomp and sing hello.

Action Rhyme: We Can Jump

We can jump, jump, jump
We can hop, hop, hop
We can clap, clap, clap
We can stop, stop, stop
We can nod our heads for yes
We can shake our heads for no
We can bend our knees a little bit
And we can sit down really slow

Fingerplay: This is Big

This is big, big, big (stretch hands far to sides)
This is small, small, small (cup hands together)
This is short, short, short (hold palms close vertically)
This is tall, tall, tall (hold palms far apart vertically)
This is fast, fast, fast (roll hands quickly)
This is slow, slow, slow (roll hands slowly)
This is yes, yes, yes (nod head)
This is no, no, no (shake head)

Song: Hello Mr. Turkey How Are You? (Tune of If You’re Happy and You Know It)

Hello Mr. Turkey, how are you? (clap, clap)
Hello Mr. Turkey, how are you? (clap, clap)
With a gobble, gobble, gobble and a wobble, wobble, wobble,
Hello Mr. Turkey, how are you? (clap, clap)

Action Rhyme: Mirror Mirror

In my mirror I can see
Two little eyes that look at me. (Point to eyes)
Two little ears, one little nose, (point to ears and nose)
Ten little fingers, ten little toes. (wiggle fingers and toes)
One little mouth I open wide, (open mouth wide)
Two little rows of teeth hidden inside. (point to teeth)
A tongue that pops both in and out, (move tongue in and out)
Lots of joints that bend about (bend knees and elbows)
When I look in the mirror, what do I see
A beautiful person looking back at me!

Action Rhyme: My Hands Say Thank You (Sign Language)

My hands say thank you with a clap, clap, clap
My feet say thank you with a tap, tap, tap
My head says thank you with a shake, shake, shake
My heart says thank you with a kiss to take

Action Rhyme: Little Turkey

I’m a little turkey
My name is Ted.
Here are my feathers,
here is my head.
Is what I say
Quick run.. It’s thanksgiving Day!

Closing Song: We Wave Goodbye Like This

We wave goodbye like this
We wave goodbye like this
We clap our hands for all our friends
We wave goodbye like this
