And Turkey Was His Name-O


Turkey Day is almost here!  For those of you who are still in school next week, we have a fun FREE activity for you.  

Based on the song, Bingo, here is a new version for a turkey:
There was a bird 
Who said Gobble Gobble 
And turkey was his name-o. 
T  u  r  k  e  y
T  u  r  k  e  y
T  u  r  k  e  y
And turkey was his name-o.


We write the lines on 7 sentence strips and put them in a pocket chart to follow along as we sing: 
While singing the second verse, the children clap for the “T” rather than sing it.  To help them remember, we put clip art of clapping hands in the pocket in front of the “T.” 
We continue with this procedure, adding another set of clapping hands for each verse sung.
By the end, all the letters are covered and the children clap for all of them.  A great exercise in self-control!
