We painted with pine tree needles this week. Yes, you read that correctly. We thought we'd try something a little different. Ms. Sheri was walking her dog last weekend & found small bunches of pine tree branches on the ground, which sparked the idea.
Turkey day is coming! We read books about Thanksgiving and discussed what Thanksgiving is all about. We completed the finishing touches on our Thanksgiving cards. We also learned how to do “A Turkey Dance” from Dance Songs for Kids by The Learning Station. The kids LOVED it! Here's the YouTube link if you'd like to try this at home: https://youtu.be/J4-jnIYRx3Q
