Although Thanksgiving is over, we read a few more Thanksgiving books & talked about what we ate. We made a graph of our favorite Thanksgiving foods. There was a tie between turkey & cookies! We also spoke about what we are thankful for in school.
At this time of year, excitement is in the air & the children become a bit restless, especially if they aren’t playing outdoors as much due to the weather. Sometimes the kids need a reminder so green & red choices were reviewed with our morning and afternoon classes.
Singing & Dancing:
Jump, Walking Song, Following Directions with Exercise, Creative Kids Anthem; Criss Cross Applesauce, Hickey, Picky Bumblebee, Jump Up & Down (transition song); The Goodbye Song; Goodbye; Day-O
Books We Read:
There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Turkey (Lucille Colandro)
This is the Turkey (Abby Levine)
Thanks for Thanksgiving (Julie Markes)
I’m Thankful Each Day (P.K. Hallinan)
I Can Make Green Choices (Jackie Kopps)
- Once again we are participating in the Scholastic Pajama Drive. With your past help, we have donated more than 75 pairs of new pajamas during the last three years to a local shelter for women & children who are victims of domestic abuse as well as Little Flower Children Services. For every new pair of pajamas we donate, Scholastic matches the pajamas with a book for the children. Please consider donating to this worthy cause. New pajamas of any size will be accepted through December 14. Thank you.
- Scholastic book orders will be sent home shortly & are due December 7.
- Ms. Sheri will be out the week 12/10-12/14. I’m going to visit my 96-year-old grandma in Florida. I haven’t seen her since January 2018. My aunt is traveling & doesn’t want to leave her alone so it was a good opportunity for me to visit her. Ms. Jenn (Stella’s mom), Ms. Kathy (Oliver’s mom) & Miss Miranda will sub. Miss Fabi & Ms. Joyce will be working additional hours as well. The children will be in good, capable hands!
- If you are looking for some family style fun this weekend, Holbrook has lots going on! See the images below!
