10 Fat Turkeys----need activity

I am in the middle of preparing a preschool lesson for my student teaching that I will teach on November 15 or 16. The teacher asked that it be Thanksgiving related. I am going to use the book 10 Fat Turkeys by Tony Johnston. I plan to use the CD and play it instead of reading. Between the page turning of 10 and 9, 9 and 8, etc. I believe there is enough time to count the number of turkeys left (one-to-one correspondence). I plan to do that but what activity could I use after the book or during centers that would be relevant? TIA

I have 10 plastic turkey finger puppets, but I prefer to read it. Then I don't have to worry about the timing. With the ten finger puppets, I have done alittle on number families. See how many a child can grab, count them and figure out how many are left in the bag.

You could make paper bag turkeys, pine cone turkeys, brown handprint turkeys. I have also make little books for the children to take home, where they make the turkeys with their thumbprints.

I recently purchased turkey visors at Michael's to do this activity. They were cute and each one was only a dollar. I plan on having the children wear them to act out the song. This may or may not fit in with this particular lesson, but a cute song to download from itunes is "Any Turkey Can Tango."

Dear teacher,
I am a teacher in search of a book "Ten FAt Turkeys" that
comes with music- a rap like song sings the story and tells
you when to turn the pages.

I recently used the book in a pre-k room and now wish to
buy it for my classroom. I found the book "10 Fat Turkeys",
but I don't see the CD/audio music in any stores.

Does your book come with the music which sings the story
like a rap. It is hilarious. But, I can't find it. PLEASE HELP
if YOU KNOW WHERE TO FIND IT:-)

Thanks,
MsStarbucks
