Our Grateful Hearts

December 3, 2011 - Preschool Weekly

This Week’s Adventures: There are many things to be thankful for and many ways to show we are grateful. We explored our feelings of thankfulness as we learned about the special, uniquely American holiday of Thanksgiving.

Favorite Activities: We were grateful for the cranberry sauce finger paint! We also wrote out things we are thankful for and included them on our cork turkey sculptures. We wove a special autumn tree as a class and practiced writing the letter “Gg”. We created cranberry heart wreathes for a bird feast on the trails. Most of all, we discussed all the people and things we feel so thankful for all year long.

Next’s Week’s Theme: Scientists for Nature (focus on letter E)

Try this at Home: Show a loved one (such as a parent, grandparent, sibling, or pet) how much you care about them by doing a special favor or chore for them.
