.The girls are enjoying the many activities of the fall and all the fun activities that can be done with all the natural materials we gathered on our nature walk. We have patterned, sorted and made our "Thankful Trees'. We have discussed and shared with the girls how the first Thanksgiving was a true celebration of food and friendship that has been honored and celebrated for many, many years. The traditions and blessings we feel and celebrate are important to understand and teach in a very simple way at their age and for them to have an understanding of the many blessings we share each and every day. The girls named many things they were thankful for and we have shared these, knowing you will be very proud of their sweet responses. We have also included some pictures of practicing skills including sorting and creating two part patterns using natural materials and creating our "Thankful Trees" with sticks, clay and tissue as a reminder of our blessings. Lastly, we were thankful for the 5th and 6th grade girls coming to make some hand turkeys with the girls. Whether a Pre-k girl or a middle school student, they all enjoyed working together on this fun project! We even enjoyed fresh sweet potatoes from the farm at lunch from Mrs. Riddle and a Thanksgiving story read by Mrs. Thomas at our library time. We had a very "thankful" week!
We wish each and every family a safe and Happy Thanksgiving,and special time spent with family and friends. We are most thankful for each and every family in our classroom this year. HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!
