The week of Thanksgiving we were so busy that it went by very fast! This was one of our first morning messages, and was probably the most popular. We talked about Thanksgiving words and the peas loved the word "cornucopia". Here they were asked to add a fruit (or veggie) to the cornucopia.
This is one bountiful cornucopia.
We also made a math craft involving, once again, sequencing! This is one of my favorites we do every year. The kids cut out Native Americans that are numbered one through ten and then then glue them in sequential order in their canoe.
Pre-K 2 listed what they were thankful for during one morning message. So sweet.
Pre-K 1 made these precious turkeys.
Worked in small groups turkey counting...
And we made place mats for our big Thanksgiving feast on Thursday. The kids wrote what they were thankful for themselves. Their handwriting is really progressing!
A favorite game was Roll-A-Turkey. Ms. Amy found this game on Pinterest and it was really cute.
Here's a finished product. That's a plump turkey!
We read some great books, too! A couple favorites:
And of course...
We had this lady in the pocket chart this week. We would read the book and feed her as we went. She's kinda got that crazy look in her eye. Probably from eating so many odd things. :)
Finally, we prepared for our feasts by getting our decorations ready. Pre-K 1 made hats to wear at the feast, Pre-K 2 made turkey centerpieces. (Which didn't make it onto my flashdrive, so I'll add a picture of them after the break!) Everything turned out adorable! Here's some hard work happening on the Pilgrim hats.
If anybody can rock a bonnet, it's this girl!
More hat making...
And finally, the feast! We had our tables set and our tummies ready! The special meal included turkey, mashed potatoes, green beans, rolls and fruit. It was a hit. Many parents joined us which was a treat!
