circle time chants for thanksgiving

Does anyone have any chants w/ music similar to spooky walk? I already have "Going on a turkey hunt" (learning colors) and "five fat turkeys scratching in the hay" (subtracting).

I find one I think I'm going to like, then at the end the turkey is killed and eaten. Whats up with that? I know that it a part of Thanksgiving... but do we have to sing about it?

wow, I had the same thoughts about "Looking for dracula!" what's with that accent anyways! nothing personal, but we are trying to teach the kids the correct way to talk! and some of them get scared easily! I am shadowing this teacher, and she played the same 5 songs in a row, 4 days a week! On friday, she was out...and I didn't play one song! sheesh!

I rather do bear hunt!

The one I have says "she'll serve them for dinner, but when you turn the page the turkeys are sitting at the table being serve corn cobs. The turkey hunt song says "we don't need an arrow and we don't need a gun, I'm looking for the turkey with his feathers colored____. What songs are you listening to?

Children can tap on their lap or tap on drums& bells- goes to traditional American Indian beat. while you put up flannel turkeys as you say the colors.
I'm going on a turkey hunt, just for fun, I don't need an arrow and I dont need a gun. i'm going on a turkey hunt so get up and out of bed, I'm loking for the turkey with it's feathers painted red, I'm going on a turkey hunt you can come too, I'm looking for the turkey with it's feathers painted blue. I'm going on a turkey hunt, my eyes are so keen , I'm looking for the turkey with it's feathers painted green,I'm goig on a turkey hunt I better not blink or I'll miss the turkey with it's feathers painted pink. I'm going on a turkey hunt, I think I see a track, I'm looking for the turkey with it's feathers painted black. I'm going on a turkey hunt that birds a funny fellow, especially the one with it's feathers painted yellow. I'm going on a turkey hunt, I'll look all around I'm looking for the turkey with it's feathers painted brown. I'm going on a turkey hunt, I'll look all night, I'm looking for the turkey with it's feathers painted white. Well I went on a turkey hunt just for fun, and I found those turkeys every single one. I normally follow it up by removing one turkey and asking which colored turkey is missing.

I don't know who music is by, I have a cd copy of a copy, it was left behind by last teacher. Lyrics aren't much without the music, my lil ones are able to folow the simple beat and they enjoy guessing which turkey is missing.

MY co-teacher last year had "The Turkey Trot" that was really cute, but I have NO idea what CD it's from.

OK, so that really wasn't any help, sorry!
