Fingerplaysc
Gobble, Gobble
The turkey is a funny bird (use one hand with fingers spread out as feathers, use other hand in "thumbs up" in front of other hand as head)
His head goes wobble, wobble (move thumb back and forth)
He knows just one silly word -
Gobble, Gobble, Gobble! (cover mouth and make a warbly gobble sound).

Five Little Turkeys (I printed off clipart turkeys, laminated them and put them on jumbo craft sticks)
Five little turkeys by the front door,
One waddled off, now there are four.
Four little turkeys out under the tree,
One waddled off, then there were three.
Three little turkeys with nothing to do,
One waddled off, now there are two.
Two little turkeys laying in the sun,
One waddled away, now there is one
One little turkey - better run away!
Soon it will be Thanksgiving Day!

Both rhymes Turkeys (taken from Totline Books 1001 Rhymes & Fingerplays)

Songs:
Open Shut Them (opening song)
Turkey Pokey- Lyrics found at 123Holiday.net
