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, Nursery 3 wore both, and Nursery 2 wore turkey hats! We sat together as a group and enjoyed the festivities!
The Kindergarten class completed a mini unit using the story The Polar Express! The children received a one way ticket to ride aboard the classroom Polar Express where we looked at the different vocabulary and created our own stories about being a passenger on the Polar Express!
We concluded the unit with a pajama day in Kindergarten! The children wore their pajamas to school and enjoyed a showing of the movie, The Polar Express, while snacking on juice and cookies. We had a super fun time wearing our pjs to school!
The Kindergarten students are working hard on practicing for the Christmas and Nativity show! Our shepherds, stable animals, angels, wise men, along with Mary and Joseph will act out the story of Jesus' birth.
