This Thanksgiving singable book uses many contractions in the lyrics of the song. Large pocket chart cards, 5 sorting mats, and small cards for Literacy Center practice for Contractions
are included. This book tells the story of a turkey named Fred who loves eating different Thanksgiving time food. A Beginning Reader, "Here’s Dinner" and writing papers come in Color & B/W. The singable is sung to the tune "I’m A Little Teapot".
This product features a Mini-movie of this Singable!
The ZIP folder includes an M4V file designed to be shown on a computer and/or large screen. This is an engaging (and easy) way to teach the singable to your class. The mini-movie includes the pages of the “book” AND our voices singing the song!
In order to play the mini-movie, Quicktime Player is needed or another program that converts an M4V file.
