A few weeks ago I posted some Thanksgiving hymns and fun songs. I just realized I have never published a list of Thanksgiving material from my website.
I’ve only made one Thanksgiving Game, and I need to make some more for an upcoming group lesson. Below is a game my students loved last year. You can find the directions here. It’s very easy and fast, plus, it comes in 3 ability levels.
For a slightly more difficult version of the same game, try Save the Turkey Game, set two
There is a more advanced version of these cards, too. The only reason I call this intermediate level is because of the key signatures. The more difficult key signatures can be removed to make this a much easier game.
Next, here are some Thanksgiving worksheets from my website.
The next worksheet, Turkey Find the Notes, can be put in a sheet protector and used with a wet erase or a dry erase marker. That way you only have to print one copy and you can use it over and over. Also, this is big enough to use with your iPad or Kindle Fire.
Turkey Find the Notes (black and white)
Color the Feathers is a quick worksheet to review treble clef notes.
I also made a black and white version. This is good to use at a group lesson with the students who come early.
I posted my revised version of Funny Thanksgiving Food a few weeks ago. Two versions are available, one in color like the example below, and one in black and white. I made the color version to be used with an iPad or Android tablet.
I made the Turkey Egg Worksheet to help my beginners learn the alphabetical order of notes on the staff. Some of my younger students are amazed to learn that turkeys lay eggs!
Thanksgiving Group Lessons
If you have ever wondered how to make sure everyone has the same amount of lessons the week of Thanksgiving without taking the entire week off, try having group lessons or a Christmas performance class on Monday and Tuesday of Thanksgiving week. It is too late to consider it this year, but you can put it on your calendar for next year.
