Thanksgiving Line Up Chant

Have you ever heard the expression when it rains, it pours?  Well, I think I just went through a hurricane!  Let's just say, I am still here and so very much want to share what we've been doing but just haven't managed to upload photos and documents and everything else.  I have been sick and my voice has improved from a squeaky whisper to a cracking hum. In the midst of it all I have had sick kids, master's class homework and a list a mile long that I'm sure you don't want to hear about.  I was so excited to post about a project we are doing tomorrow... along with some freebies but I left my jump drive at school (Ugh!)  I plan on taking lots of pictures tomorrow and share them with you this weekend.  In the meantime, I wanted you to know that I'm still here and am looking forward to catching up.  I literally could not muster up the energy to sit at my computer.  I'm feeling better, sounding better and hope I am on my way to a full recovery!  I wrote this little line up chant for my first graders as they are so into Turkey Books, Turkey Stories, Turkey Facts.... so my little turkeys line up singing this:

I can't wait to do some of the activities I've already found online tonight! You guys rock and I'm so excited to be cruisin' in blogland again!  My printer is working overtime.  Until tomorrow... have a wonderful evening!


  1. Love it! That is soooo cute! :)

  2. Love it so much!!!!! Got one in mind for December???

  3. Hi, Nicole,
    I'm an EFL teacher in Taiwan. I just saw your post of Thanksgiving line up chant and really love this great idea!! Actually, me and my friends really enjoy reading your blog and appreciating your creative teaching ideas. I am wondering if it is welcome that I share this Thanksgiving line up chant idea on my facebook page with a photo and a direct link to your blog with other EFL teachers?? It will certainly inspire most of them!


  4. Nicole,
    LOVE the line up chants - I just found you! So I know I will definitely be using the Turkey one! Just like Jeanna asked...any for December? Thanks for sharing your musical rhyming talent!

  5. Love this! Thanks! I was amazed at how quickly my first graders picked this up! They sing it even when they get lined up in their special classes and the teachers are always smiling when I pick up my kids.
    So cute!
    Any ideas for December?
