There’s a certain song I look forward to singing as soon as the leaves start turning colors, but I always hold out until November. The first line goes like this:
“On the first day of Thanksgiving, this is what I ate: some turkey on my plate.”
There are 9 more verses where that came from, all of which many of my students know by heart. Not surprising, considering this is the 3rd year in a row I’ve sung this song with them during the month of November.
I had so much fun creating an original recording of this song, as well as an instrumental version and PDF visual. All three of these downloads, plus the full lyrics and chords, are available in a single album right here.
I use the visual aide two ways: 1) as a flip-book while I sing the song with one student or a small group, and 2) as individual pages that I pass out to a larger group for students to take turns holding up as their verse is sung. The song is great fun either way!
