WEEKLY UPDATE: NOVEMBER 12 – 16 AND 19 -23, 2018

THEME: FAMILY TIME / WE GIVE THANKS

Some families are large, some families are small,

but I love my family best of all!”

Families and Thanksgiving will be the focus of our activities for these two weeks. At circle time we will read the story of the first Thanksgiving, discuss our own family Thanksgiving celebrations, our favorite Thanksgiving foods and what we are thankful for. Other activities planned include painting turkeys, creating a thankful wreath and a writing activity about our families.

The letter of the week activity is I is for insect.

At music time we will dance the turkey-pokey, sing On Thanksgiving Day by Laurie Berkner and this turkey song:

I’M A LITTLE TURKEY (tune of I’m a Little Teapot)

I’m a little turkey fluffy and brown.

My wings flip flop when I turn around.

I have a lot of feathers on my back,

And a big orange beak that goes click-clack.

**11/12 -11/16 is a sharing week.We are asking each child to bring in a family photo on their scheduled sharing day. You may send in a picture of just one or two individual relatives or a group picture; any family photo your child selects will be fine. We plan to pin the photos onto a classroom bulletin board for

several weeks. The photos will then be kept for each child’s end-of-the-year portfolio book.

your sharing in on Monday 11/19.
