We are Grateful!
This was such a month of growth. I saw friendships grow, skills grow, language grow, story telling grow, writing grow, etc. I am thankful for growth.
We learned how to sign "Thank You" and the song "Over the River and Through the Woods." Ask your preschooler to show you.
I absolutely LOVE The Three Billy Goats Gruff week! Enjoy the pictures below. My heart was so happy every time I heard the story being told, acted out, and even sung at one point. It was a marvelous original composition by one of our preschool children.
We spent a lot of time learning the history of the first Thanksgiving and making turkeys and other creations in the learning process. I bet they can tell you what happened on the Mayflower!
As we looked forward to our Feast day we made our own pies and practiced table manners. We always wait for everyone to have their snack in front of them before we take our hands off our lap, say "Thank You," and eat. It is important that they learn delayed gratification. This is a small way to practice waiting for something we want.
We will be going outside on most days so please be sure to have your child wear closed-toe shoes, a warm winter coat, and clothes proper for the weather. Thanks!
Looking forward we will be using our small motor skills at the wrapping center while we practice gift wrapping. Do have any extra tape or wrapping paper we can add to this center? We go through a lot of tape!
Please look at the photos and captions and enjoy the happenings in November, we certainly did!
