Finger Play Fun Day: 5 Little Turkeys

5 Little Turkeys - a Finger Play for Thanksgiving

 5 Little Turkeys is the perfect finger play to teach your children for Thanksgiving!

My students have been laughing at the turkey finger puppets that I made to go along with this finger play.  They think the feathers look like a hat coming out of the turkeys' heads instead of tail feathers!  Oh well!

Carolyn, from Wise Owl Factory has created a great 5 Little Turkeys power point that includes all the words to the finger play along with some fun animation.  Plus a Turkey Number Matching Game!  Be sure to check it all out!

5 Little Turkeys

Five little turkeys were standing by the door;  one saw some corn, and then there were four.

Four little turkeys flew up in a tree; one fell down and then there were three.

Three little turkeys gobbled as they do;  a dog chased one and then there were two.

Two little turkeys strutting in the sun;  the wind came along and then there was one.

One little turkey saw a farmer with an ax; run turkey run!



  1. I think your fingerplays are so much fun! Thanks for the printables too!

    1. I'm so glad you like them! Thanks for reading and commenting Andrea!

  2. Perfect for the younger set to be singing this month. Children need so many experiences with the number 5 and you are providing so many opportunities! Carolyn
