Making Thanksgiving Cards


Prek 4 ( Jennifer Quartucci )

First, we would like to wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving!  We are thankful for the time we get to spend with your children each day, watching them grow, learn and having fun making memories with one another.

  • Learning about the ‘Mayflower’ and completing a journal entry: ‘ If I went on the ‘Mayflower’, I would bring..

We’ll learn more about Thanksgiving this week and read The Pilgrim’s First Thanksgiving by

Ann McGovern and Natasha Wing’s The Night Before Thanksgiving.

We’ll make a handprint “Mayflower,” paper plate Pilgrims and colorful turkeys with the letters of our names on the feathers!

On Wednesday, we’ll have our own Thanksgiving parade ( the children will wear the feather headbands they made with Mrs. Z. and Mrs. Revithi )! We’ll snack on a turkey that we’ll make together with pears, bananas, strawberries, blueberries and grapes!

To help strengthen muscles and gross motor skills, we’ll have fun using our feet to toss beanbags into a hoop, a box and a bucket!

The children are doing so well at circle time; we are working on taking turns and encouraging and congratulating each other!

We had a great week at school!

We continued practicing our letters.  This week we worked on the letter G.  We made a bunch of grapes with our index finger and purple paint, it was so much fun!

We made our own gingerbread man and enjoyed reading the story.  We did our fun letter G worksheets for lots of practice!

At circle time, we sang our finger-play songs, and we started a new song – “Pat- A- Cake”, we worked on colors, shapes, days of the week, months, seasons, and holidays.  We are starting to learn our birthday month and day.

We continued to practice our manners, taking turns, sharing, and being kind and considerate to our friends.

Next week, is a short week of school, the Thanksgiving holiday is here!!  At school, we are thankful for our friends and the opportunity to learn and grow!

We will share a feast with our friends and discuss what we are thankful for at our home.

November was a fantastic month!!  School is a fun place to be –Remember to wear your smile to school!

A very Happy Thanksgiving to all our friends and families!!!!!
