With finger rhymes, I always ask the kids, “Did you bring your fingers today?” They love to wiggle them so I can see them.

Then I say, “OK, now they are–TURKEYS!” (Or leaves, or pumpkins or whatever they case may be).

Ten fat turkeys standing in a row (hold up hands with fingers pressed together).

They spread their feathers and tails like so (spread fingers).

They strut to the left (move hands to the left).

They strut to the right (move hands to the right).

They say “gobble, gobble” in the bright sunlight.
