Turkey Songs

Thanksgiving is upon us and this is a great time to sing about that funny bird, the turkey. 

Turkey Jerky Sung to "The Hokey Pokey"
You put your right wing in
You put your right wing out
You put your right wing in 
And you shake it all about
You do the Turkey Jerky (strut like a turkey)
And you turn yourself about
That's what it's all about (Turkey Jerky)

Alternate verses: Left wing, drumsticks(legs), stuffing(tummy), waddle (neck), head, tail feathers

Five Little Turkeys
5 little turkeys standing by the door
1 waddled off and then there were four
4 little turkeys underneath a tree
1 waddled off and then there were three
3 little turkeys with nothing to do
1 waddled off and then there were two
2 little turkeys in the noon day sun
1 waddled off and then there were one
1 little turkey better run away
For soon will come Thanksgiving day.

8 little turkeys playing with sticks
2 waddled off and then there were six


6 little turkeys  standing by the door
2 waddled off and then there were four
4 little turkeys with nothing to do
2 waddled off and then there were two
2 little turkeys better run away.
For soon will come Thanksgiving day.

See my feathers Sung to "Mary Had a little lamb"
See my feathers colored bright
Colored bright, colored bright
See my feathers colored bright
What a pretty sight
(link thumbs and wiggle fingers for feathers)

See me tummy big and fat
Big and fat, big and fat
See my tummy big and fat
What do you think of that?

See my head look all around
All around, all around
See my head look all around
For corn upon the ground

See me as I strut and sway
Strut and sway, strut and sway
See me as I strut and sway
This is what I say: 
Gobble, gobble, gobble

Behavior Management Motivators

   1.  Tried and true:  “I like how Henry is sitting quietly”    2.  Scoreboard:  Tallies for different groups, boys and girls, teacher vs. student, table groups.  I did this all last year and it was not even for a prize.  Kids love competition!    3.  Token economy:  Give the class a cotton ball or marble in a jar for when they are following the rules or getting their work done.    4.  Special Friend:  Have a special animal the student gets to sit with if they do an awesome job.  The special friend will only sit with a quiet friend.    5.  Special Something:  Special sticker, stamp or candy (it works) for those who are following directions.    6.  Selfies:  Take a video or picture (or pretend to).  Tell them you might send this to their parents so they need to be on their best behavior!    7.  Super Spot:  Draw a smiley face or use scented lip balm to make a spot.    8.  Mystery Student:  Pick a random student to watch for good behavior.  Pi
