In November we learned about the Pilgrims and Native Americans and the first Thanksgiving Feast they shared together. We talked about what it means to be thankful and shared some things we are thankful for.

Last month we played lots of fun games! Color Matching, Stop and Boo!, The Alphabet Hunt, and Musical Dino Prints.

We made coffee filter turkeys, fall collages, fall leaves and handprint turkeys. We painted with plungers, basting brushes, TP Tubes, toothbrushes and our hands.

We scooped and poured cinnamon oats at the sensory table and squeezed and molded pumpkin pie spice scented playdough.

This month we’ll learn new holiday songs and learn all about Hanukkah and Christmas. If your family has a holiday custom or tradition you’d like to share with our class please let us know.
