Color Turkey Feathers
added 9-28-98 Original
Mr. Turkey was so sad.
He lost the feathers he once had.
Now he wants us to help him find
all the feathers of his kind.
We will look both high and low,
we will find them, don't you know.
Here's a red one and a blue.
Look, we've found a green one too.
Here's an orange one and a yellow
soon he'll be a feathered fellow.
Now we've found the purple one,
Black and white-we're almost done.
If we just look up and down,
I know we'll find the feather brown.
Now Mr. Turkey is so glad,
We found the feathers he once had.
Make the Feather Pieces. Enough so that
each kid has one.

Cut five turkey body shapes out of brown felt and fifteen feather shapes
out of red, yellow and orange felt. Number the turkey body shapes
from 1 to 5 and put them on a flannelboard. Place the feather shapes in a
pike. To play the game, have the children take turns selecting a turkey,
identifying the number on it and adding that many feathers to it.
Five Fat Turkeys added
by: Jennifer Bradley
Cut 5 turkeys, a tree, and a "cook" from felt to use with the
Five fat turkeys are we-e.
We slept all night in the tree-e.
When the cook came around we were not to be found,
And that's why we're here you see!
Four fat turkeys are we-e.....
and it continues on. The children can take turns placing the turkeys in
and out of the tree!
