“Some families are large, some families are small,
But I love my family best of all!”
Families and Thanksgiving will be the focus of the activities in the classroom.
At circle time we will read Thanksgiving books, discuss our own family Thanksgiving celebrations, our favorite Thanksgiving foods and what we are thankful for.
Other activities planned include painting turkeys at the easel, creating a thankful wreath and completing a writing activity about our families.
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.
**11/13 – 11/17 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 great. We plan to pin the photos onto a classroom bulletin board for several weeks, then the picture will remain in school to be added to your child’s end-of-the year portfolio.
The letter of the week activities are H is for heart and I is for ice cream.
