We began our day by talking about a meal that we might enjoy on Thanksgiving day. To decide what our favorite Thanksgiving food was, each preschooler got to vote on their favorite Thanksgiving food. Ask your preschooler if they can remember what they voted as their favorite food.
After that, we used our Smartboard to view our Scholastic Classroom magazine all about being thankful. We discussed what we were thankful for and this helped us in our project of the day.
Our project of the day was to create a turkey with feathers that told things we were thankful for. The preschoolers thought of many wonderful reasons they are thankful.
Other centers of the day were:
drawing in our notebooks
Thanksgiving coloring pages
creating a Thanksgiving feast in dramatic play
During story time we read many books like Clifford’s Thanksgiving Visit, Thank You For Thanksgiving and The Night Before Thanksgiving. Ask your preschooler which book was their favorite!
Remember, we have NO SCHOOL November 23-25 to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday.
See some of you tomorrow!
