“Thanksgiving Day” Poem

I’m just hopping on here to share the poem we are working to memorize in our Circle/Morning time.

Many people think of this as a song called Over the River and Through the Woods (and, yes, we are learning it to the tune), but it’s actually originally a poem by Lydia Maria Child, published in 1844. This is a slightly updated version found in my beloved book Correlated Curriculum Activities: Our Holidays Through Poetry, Story, and Song. The updated words help it fit better with the tune. You can find the original words online.

I hope it’s a blessing to you and your family!
