Turkey Trot
(To the tune of the Hokey Pokey)

You put your right wing in,
And you shake it all about.
You do the turkey trot
And you turn yourself around.
That’s what it’s all about!

Yes, I do  (nod head
Turkey in my tummy.  (rub tummy)

Good for you  (point to others)

We loved all these songs!

Math Tuesdays
-Count with book: 5 Little Turkeys
-Counting and sorting feathers
-Focus on the triangle shape

Didn't get to any of this!

Art Wednesdays
-T Painting: Use something that starts with the letter “T” (toothbrush) as a tool to paint the turkey 
-Corn Painting: Use a corn cob as a paint roller to create paintings.
-Turkey footprint
-Turkey handprint cutout:

We did the toothbrush painting, and she really enjoyed this! 
We also did the turkey handprint cutout.  At first, I planned on just tracing one hand and then retracing that copy because I figured that it would be rather difficult to trace her hands.  But she surprised me! She LOVED having her hands traced, and she eagerly placed the next hand on the paper to be traced!
I was super excited to do the corn painting, but I always forgot to buy corn!! (or we ate it all haha).

Science/Sensory Thursdays
-Turkey felt play: Cut out pieces of turkey from felt to build turkey
-Leaf contact paper activity found here 
-Brown sensory bin

I attempted to make a brown sensory bin, but realized I didn't have a lot of brown things to put in there haha.  Oh well!  

And here are a few photos =]
