ASL Sign of the Week: Turkey

This Old Road (done as lap bounce, modified from Everything Preschool)
This old road is hard and bumpy, (bounce on lap)
Makes the turkeys very jumpy.
Driver, driver, not so jerky, (rock back and forth)
Or we might just loose a turkey! (lean back)

I'm a little turkey (from Perpetual Preschool)
(to the tune of "I'm a little teapot")
I'm a little turkey, fluffy and round.
My wings flap when I turn around. (flap arms like wings)
I've got feathers on my back.
And a big orange beak that goes click clack! (Put hands in front of mouth like a beak and clap together)

Did you ever see a turkey? (to the tune of "Did you ever see a Lassie?", modified from Library Village
Did you ever see a turkey, a turkey a turkey?
Did you ever see a turkey (insert action) this way and that?
(Insert action) this way and that way, and this way and that way?
Did you ever see a turkey (insert action) this way and that? 

Turkey Pokey (version of Hokey Pokey, from HCPL Kidsite)
You put your right wing in,
You take your right wing out.
You do they Turkey Pokey and you turn yourself around.
That's what it's all about.
(For more verses substitute left wing, beak, claws, tail feathers and turkey body) 

Turkey wore his rainbow feathers (sung to "Mary Wore Her Red Dress", from Everything Preschool)  
Turkey wore his red feather, red feather, red feather.
Turkey wore his red feather all day long!
(continue further verses with other colors)

Final verse: 
Turkey wore his rainbow feathers, rainbow feathers, rainbow feathers.
Turkey wore his rainbow feathers all day long!

We made a stuffed turkey "fly" on our parachute.

Craft: We decorated a feather print out with craft feathers. 

Literacy tip of the week: Ask your child to make predictions about the story as you read with them. This will help increase their understanding of the book. It will also help them develop their narrative skills.
