Grandma Moses song and a Turkey game




I learned a new-to-me song for using egg shakers during story time. It is called Grandma Moses.

Grandma Moses sick in bed.
Call the doctor and the the Doctor said " Grandma, grandma you ain't sick. All you need is a peppermint stick."
Hands up shakey shake, shake, shake.
Hands down shakey shake, shake, shake.
All around shakey shake, shake, shake.

Get out of town shakey shake, shake, shake.

You continue the verses by going around the circle and having each child fill in the bolded word  with one that rhymes with sick.

I have found a fun flannel board game, too. The children add flannel feathers of different colors to a flannel turkey body each time you sing the rhyme.

Turkey Feathers Game

Sung to “Are you Sleeping?”

Our poor turkey
lost his feathers.
Let’s all help, everyone.
Do you have a  *(red) one?
Come and bring the *(red) one.
Oh what fun!
Oh what fun!

What fun things are you doing at your library?
