November is one of my very favorite months as far as music therapy goes, because I have all sorts of fun Thanksgiving-related songs to use with my students. And as excited as I am about the holiday, I’m a little bummed that it is here so soon — because that means I’ll have to stop singing about it.
This month has honestly been a whirlwind, between my trip to Minnesota, preparing for conference, and spending the last 5 days in Atlanta (more on that soon). I feel like I barely had an opportunity to do the Turkey Dinner Dance or break out my favorite Thanksgiving tune of all: The Ten Days of Thanksgiving.
I only have two days with students this week before the holiday break, so I’ll be getting as much use out of it as possible in between today and tomorrow. By Thursday I’ll be more than ready for turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and all the yummy foods I’ve been singing about! Yum. What songs and activities are you using in the last few days before Thanksgiving?
Hey Rachel! I love your 10 Days of Thanksgiving song, and the visual is too cool too!
Turkey day is quickly approaching and I’ve been busy singing Ted the Turkey, I am Thankful (adapted from Hap Palmer), Turkey Feathers (a color identification song), and The colors of Thanksgiving (a song about the colors of the Thanksgiving foods we eat).
I’ll be sharing all of these, whether old or new songs, Tuesday on More with Music! :)
