Happy Thanksgiving!


Thanksgiving brings with it many teachable moments and fun activities to celebrate gratitude and learn about early American history. Here, a turkey display made by our Kindergarten classes - its feathers showcase what the children are thankful for. Most listed their families or siblings, but here are some more unexpected things kids were thankful for:
"mac and cheese"
"my aunts and uncles" (spelled, very sweetly: "my ants and ankls")
"my fish"
"playing with my toys"
 
 
 
Three-year-olds in the Purple Room learned about the Pilgrims coming over on the Mayflower.
 
 
 
 
3rd and 4th graders created these beautiful teepees, complete with clothespin people to live in them.
