Activities: Our Autumn art pictures are complete & hanging in the classroom. We painted a very large turkey as a group, decorated turkey feathers & played “pin the feather on the turkey.” We spoke about our families & named the people in our family. We read books about being thankful & discussed what we are thankful for. We painted leaves & hung them on our Thankful Tree in the classroom. We also made turkey cards to wish our families a very Happy Thanksgiving. A great big thank you to Myles’ & Max’s mom for sending in fun turkey masks for us to color & wear. As you can see, we’ve been very busy!
- Once again we are participating in the Scholastic Pajama Drive. With your help, we have donated approximately 50 pairs of pajamas during the last two years to a local shelter for women & children who are victims of domestic abuse. For every pair of pajamas we donate, Scholastic matches the pajamas & a book for the children. Please consider donating to this worthy cause. Pajamas of any size will be accepted through December 12. Thank you.
- We are closed on Thursday, 11/23 & Friday, 11/24 for Thanksgiving break. However, please note, we have a Drop & Shop program on Friday, 11/24 from 9:00-3:00 for $10 per hour or $50 for the day. Ages 2-7 are welcome. Pre-registration & payment is required as space is limited. Register in person or on our website.
- December Scholastic book orders are due 12/1/7 to ensure delivery before the holiday break.
Wishing you all a grateful Thanksgiving holiday weekend!
