TIP OF THE DAY: Write A Thanksgiving Poem

If you’ve got time to fill before or after Thanksgiving dinner, have a poetry jam.

Have guests compose their own poems, or print out some of the many at TeachingFirst.net for recitation. Here’s our choice:

A THANKSGIVING DINNER
by Maude M. Grant

Take a turkey, stuff it fat,
Some of this and some of that.
Get some turnips, peel them well.
Cook a big squash in its shell.
Now potatoes, big and white,
Mash till they are soft and light.
Cranberries, so tart and sweet,
With the turkey we must eat.
Pickles-yes-and then, oh my!
For a dessert a pumpkin pie,
Golden brown and spicy sweet.
What a fine Thanksgiving treat!

 
It could become an annual tradition, with judging and chocolate turkey prizes.

WISH YOU A JOYOUS THANKSGIVING!
