Turkey with song names on feathers. Have children pick the feathers.

 A Thanksgiving Singing Time Twist by Brianne Call

 I googled a picture of a cornucopia and then cut the pieces from construction paper to make a poster size cornucopia where the pieces come off.  On the back of each piece is a fall/gratitude song.  I plan to use this as a singing time choosing poster and then use it as a filler for the remainder of November. (Idea by Christine Hurst / ga10292009)

Thanksgiving Sing Story

 Something I did last week which was very easy and the children loved was I put the letters to THANKSGIVING on individual papers. We discussed the 2 words in 'Thanks and Giving' and the importance of them. A child would come up pick a letter out of my pumpkin and come up with a word that started with the letter they chose, that had something to do with 'what they were thankful for or a way that they could give or serve'. It gave them a large range of songs and songs they sang in a while (like the seniors singing give said the little stream for the letter G) and they loved it. The juniors needed a little prompting, but it turned out great. (Idea by Stefan Boyer)

Thanksgiving Singing Time

 Bring an object to be passed from child to child.  Like a small pumpkin or turkey stuffed animal (you can adapt your object to a theme).  While singing the song pass the object, when the song ends the child holding the object shares something they are thankful for.

(Idea shared by AnJanette Broderick / ga11102007)  I changed the words to "I am glad for many things"  to reflect some of the blessings we have been given.  Thought it might be good for this time of year.
 
I am glad for my fam'ly, the temple, the prophet
I am glad for many things that are mine today.
 
I am glad for the scriptures, all my friends, and my health.
I am glad for many things that are mine today.
 
Thank you, thank you, my heart sings, my heart sings.
Thank you for the many things that are mine today.
