Gobble Gobble Turkey Wobble by Koo Koo Kangaroo (3:13)

This is a fun video that will have the kids moving and following directions.  Super fun!

Thanksgiving Feast by The Learning Station (3:50)

This is a fun song about what people typically eat for Thanksgiving dinner.  The song is repetitive and so the kids will learn the tune quickly.

If You’re Thankful and You Know It by Kidboomers (1:35)

This is a great song if you are having a Thanksgiving or Friendship feast. The video itself is only the band playing the song, but the message is so good that you will 100% want to do this one with your kiddos.

And if you are working on Thanksgiving, you will love this book.  Our interactive Thanksgiving Reader has everything from a DAP  the story of Thanksgiving, to being thankful, to eating turkey.  We just did an update to this resource too, so make sure you grab the update!  (Click here to check it out now).

All You Turkeys Dance Around by Harry Kindergarten Music (5:12)

How cool is this?  This is Harry Kindergarten’s coworker, Mr. Dave Plummer, wrote and sings this song.  It is a fun movement song that is loaded with learning and vocabulary about turkeys.

And if you are learning about turkeys, you will love our Nonfiction Turkey Books with Activities.  This is a six-page story all about turkeys.  The sentences are simple and the pictures are real so the kids are sure to love them just as much as you do.  The set comes with several different options on sizing and also has some great writing activities using those same pictures.

Another quick song with motions the kids will love.  So simple, I don’t even need to describe it.

This takes the above video and really adds in the numbers and subtraction sentences.  The song also reinforces how to say those sentences so it is really good math support for the kids.

These math videos go great with our Thanksgiving No-Prep Printables for Kindergarten.  This unit is filled with reading and math printables and centers that require no prep. They cover everything from the alphabet to reading words to counting and addition and subtraction.
