November 12 - 16 We Give Thanks!  

The story of the very first Thanksgiving and all of it's traditions will be our study this week.  We will act out the story and focus especially on giving thanks to God for all that we have which is good.  God, our God, has blessed us and we are thankful.  Turkeys are funny birds.  How do they fit into the story of Thanksgiving?  We will examine real turkey feathers and pictures of the real bird.  The next step will be to create funny turkeys this week that surprisingly look a lot like us.

We look forward to reading our classroom book entitled, The Book of Thanksgiving.  Please return the book page that was sent home last week.  These pages are due this Thursday/Friday.  I hope that as you stop and take time to help your preschooler complete their page it reminds us all of that which we are most thankful.

Scholastic book orders are due this Wednesday the 14th.  Order your holiday books now!  

Library visits will be on Thursday/ Fridays.  The preschoolers will be able to check out one book and then need to return it before the following library day in order to check out another.  A LIBRARY BOX for returns is located outside of the classroom.

Boot Season - As we begin to dress in our winter gear, please remember to mark all boots, mittens, hats, etc. with names.  Boots may be left in the hallway to keep our classroom floor clean and dry for play.  Lunch bunchers may leave their boots by their names outside the Lunch Bunch room.
