Ted the Turkey

Here's a song you can use for "turkey" season with students. I think it has the possibilities of being a really fun and cute song! :)

I found lyrics to the first part of this song on the internet and it us usually sung to the tune of "I'm a little teapot". I added the additional lyrics and changed the tune so that I can use this song with younger and older students. I will use this song for educational purposes only.

Some of the ways you might use this song include asking "Wh" questions (i.e. What is the turkey's name? What does a turkey say?) and then with the second half of the song, ask students, Where could the turkey hide?" You can have pictures printed representing choices of where the turkey could hide and let students pick one of the pictures, or for more advanced students, let them draw the place where the turkey could hide. I'm sure you will get some very creative answers!

I'm a little turkey.
My name is Ted.
Here are my feathers,
And here is my head.
Gobble, gobble, gobble
is what I say
and I'm running away on Thanksgiving day, Yes!
I'm running away on Thanksgiving Day!

Where should I go? Where should I hide?
Should I stay inside? Or should I run outside?
Where should I go? Where should I stay?
Cause I'm running away on Thanksgiving Day, Yes
I'm running away, on Thanksgiving Day!
