We Are Thankful!

The theme for the last week of November was "We Are Thankful". Since it is a short week, we focused on Thanksgiving and Turkey themed activities. We finished out the month with our ABAB patterned turkeys!

This week we readA Turkey for Thanksgiving by Eve Bunting
                                        Thanksgiving is for Giving Thanks by Margaret Sutherland
                                        Bear Says Thanks by Karma Wilson

We have gotten to the end of another month, which means comparing weathers!

Our question of the week was "What are you thankful for?"

For our theme "We Are Thankful", we did a lot of fun activities. We made Turkey headbands to wear at our school's Thanksgiving feast. Speaking of feast... yum!!

We sang "Turkey Dinner" to the tune of Frere Jaques.
Turkey Dinner, Turkey Dinner
Gather Round, Gather Round
Who will get the drumstick?
Yummy Yummy drumstick
All sit down, all sit down.
Cornbread, muffins,
Chestnuts, stuffing,
Pudding pie ten feet high.
We were all much thinner, before we sat for dinner!
Me, oh, my me, oh, my.

The kids colored and put together a turkey "puzzle". I couldn't decide if I wanted letters to help them, or numbers, so I did both!

I gave the children a turkey maze and a pumpkin maze, that they had a lot of fun with.

We looked at pictures to find out which ones were different.

The kids wrote in their journal about what they are thankful for.

We sang "Let's Be Thankful" to the tune of Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.

Counting from 1-30 is much more fun while making a Turkey dot-to-dot!

We talked about the Cornucopia, and the the class colored and cut vegetables and fruits to make a Cornucopia collage.

We also had our first "real" snow of the season!!

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!
