Voki Tip of the Week: Thanksgiving Poems

Gobble gobble everyone! Thanksgiving will be here soon! Remember those handprint turkeys we used to make in school? Let’s celebrate Thanksgiving this year by reciting a Thanksgiving poem. Have your students research a short (or funny) Thanksgiving poem and recite it!

Encourage them to share it with their family at their Thanksgiving dinner!

Let’s listen to our Thanksgiving poem, If Turkeys Thought, by Jack Prelutsky.

 

Do you have a Thanksgiving poem or quote you would like to share? Share it with us on our Facebook page or tweet it to us @officialvoki!

Until next time,
