We introduce a certain family of Drinfeld modules that we propose as analogues of the Legendre normal form elliptic curves. We exhibit explicit formulas for a certain period of such Drinfeld modules as well as formulas for the supersingular locus in that family, establishing a connection between these two kinds of formulas. Lastly, we also provide a closed formula for the supersingular polynomial in the j-invariant for generic Drinfeld modules.
