I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoyed time off with your families and friends. Before we left for the holiday, we had our own Thanksgiving celebration with our Early Childhood friends. We had a Charlie Brown Thanksgiving! The entire Early Childhood got together to watch the movie Charlie Brown, Thanksgiving and we had a "Charlie Brown style" feast! Instead of the traditional turkey, mashed potatoes, and the rest of the fixings, we had bread, pretzels, popcorn and M&M's! It was terrific!
The Kindergarten students wore Native American headbands, the PK wore Pilgrim bonnets and hats, and the Nursery wore both! We sat together as a group and enjoyed the festivities!
The Kindergarten class is working on a mini unit using the story The Polar Express! The children will receive a one way ticket to ride aboard the classroom Polar Express where we will look at the different vocabulary and create our own stories about being a passenger on the Polar Express!
On Wednesday, December 5th, we will conclude the unit with a pajama day in Kindergarten! The children may wear their pajamas to school but must wear sneakers as well. We will enjoy a showing of the movie, The Polar Express, while snacking on hot cocoa and cookies.
The Kindergarten students are working hard on practicing for the Christmas and Nativity show! Our shepherds, angels, wise men, along with Mary and Joseph will act out the story of Jesus' birth.
