November 16 - December 2

Wow! It has been very busy at our preschool. The week before Thanksgiving we dressed as Indians and Pilgrims and had a Thanksgiving feast. Ask your student about:
  • dancing the Turkey Pokey and the Turkey strut
  • singing "If you're thankful and you know it" and "Gobble, gobble, gobble, said the bird"
  • chanting "Mr. Turkey big and fat"
  • making a grateful turkey whose feathers listed our blessings
  • making music with homemade instruments
  • dressing up as pilgrims and Indians
  • reading "The First Thanksgiving" and "Grover's book of Baby Animals"
  • playing "Hide turkey hide"
  • learning the sound for the letter "M"
Then this week Nov. 30 - Dec. 2, we:
  • learned the letter "C" sound
  • made a caterpillar for our ABC book
  • read "The Kissing Hand", "The Cat in the Hat" "The Biggest Best Snowman" and "C is for Clown"
  • reviewed the letters we've learned and begin making words like "cat, hat, sat, mat, fat and rat"
  • played "Cootie" with a Santa face
  • began making a Santa Advent calendar
  • sang "Guess who's beard is long and white?" and "Once there was a snowman"
  • began making salt dough ornaments which we'll paint this next week.
