Ten Days of Thanksgiving

by Rachel on November 17, 2008

I’m back from Florida and really excited to share today’s song with all of you. Since Thanksgiving is ten days away, I thought it was the perfect time to post “The Ten Days of Thanksgiving”. This is a huge hit with my students, though the staff at my school prides themselves on being able to sing along with me:) So I hope you’re hungry; and if you’re not, you will be before this song is through!

On the first day of Thanksgiving, this is what I ate:
Some turkey on my plate.

On the second day of Thanksgiving, this is what I ate:
Two cobs of corn,
And some turkey on my plate.

On the third day of Thanksgiving, this is what I ate:
Three mashed potatoes,
Two cobs of corn,
And some turkey on my plate.

On the fourth day of Thanksgiving, this is what I ate:
Four heaps of green beans,
Three mashed potatoes,
Two cobs of corn,
And some turkey on my plate.

On the fifth day of Thanksgiving, this is what I ate:
Five golden rolls!
Four heaps of green beans,
Three mashed potatoes,
Two cobs of corn,
And some turkey on my plate.

On the sixth day of Thanksgiving, this is what I ate:
Six scoops of stuffing,
Five golden rolls!
Four heaps of green beans,
Three mashed potatoes,
Two cobs of corn,
And some turkey on my plate.

On the seventh day of Thanksgiving, this is what I ate:
Seven sips of soup,
Six scoops of stuffing,
Five golden rolls!
Four heaps of green beans,
Three mashed potatoes,
Two cobs of corn,
And some turkey on my plate.

On the eighth day of Thanksgiving, this is what I ate:
Eight cups of eggnog,
Seven sips of soup,
Six scoops of stuffing,
Five golden rolls!
Four heaps of green beans,
Three mashed potatoes,
Two cobs of corn,
And some turkey on my plate.

On the ninth day of Thanksgiving, this is what I ate:
Nine cranberries,
Eight cups of eggnog,
Seven sips of soup,
Six scoops of stuffing,
Five golden rolls!
Four heaps of green beans,
Three mashed potatoes,
Two cobs of corn,
And some turkey on my plate.

On the tenth day of Thanksgiving, this is what I ate:
Ten pumpkin pies,
Nine cranberries,
Eight cups of eggnog,
Seven sips of soup,
Six scoops of stuffing,
Five golden rolls!
Four heaps of green beans,
Three mashed potatoes,
Two cobs of corn,
And some turkey on my plate.

How did you do? You’ll be a pro after listening to the song just a few times, trust me! Well it’s Monday, which means my to-do list is long and I better get to it before my first class begins. Have a wonderful day, and I’ll see you tomorrow!

This song is soooooo fun!! I used it today, which is our Thanksgiving feast at school. I used it with my special needs class and it went over so well that I also used it with my general ed 1st, 2nd, and 3rd classes also!! It was a true hit! I made a powerpoint with images in the correct number for each day (ie. 10 pumpkin pies) so the kids could sing-a-long! Thanks, Rachel!! You’re awesome!
