Book – Thanks for Thanksgiving- by Julie Markes – At Thanksgiving time, children express their gratitude for people and things in their lives.

Song – Thanksgiving Song (Tune: Twinkle, Twinkle little star)

Thank you, thank you, very much
For everything that I can touch.
Thanks a lot for nature’s food.
And for when I’m feeling good.
Thank you, thank you very much.
For moms and dads and friends and such.

Book – Setting the Turkeys Free- by W. Nikola-Lisa – A young boy uses his hands, paint, sequins, and everything imaginable to make beautiful turkeys in his picture. Soon his imagination takes over, and the turkeys take on a life of their own. But Foxy the fox is on the prowl. How can the boy hold tight to the turkeys he loves and keep them safe from harm?

Song – If You’re Thankful and You Know It? (Tune: If You’re Happy and You Know It)

If you’re thankful and you know it,
clap your hands.
If you’re thankful and you know it,
clap your hands.
If you’re thankful and you know it,
then your face will surely show it.
If you’re thankful and you know it,
clap your hands.

If you’re thankful and you know it,
stomp your feet.
If you’re thankful and you know it,
stomp your feet.
If you’re thankful and you know it,
then your face will surely show it.
If you’re thankful and you know it,
stomp your feet.

If you’re thankful and you know it,
shout “I am!”
If you’re thankful and you know it,
shout “I am!”
If you’re thankful and you know it,
then your face will surely show it.
If you’re thankful and you know it,
shout “I am!”
