Peek Into The Cherry Blossom Classroom – week of 11/21/22

Happy Thanksgiving!

This week we learned about Thanksgiving! We briefly covered the history of the day, and how Thanksgiving is a holiday that is celebrated at different times all over the world to give thanks for the harvest in the Fall. We also discussed how this is a time for us to be grateful for all that we have. We talked about what makes our hearts happy, and then told the class what we’re most grateful for. Mom, Dads, sisters, brothers, and pets were at the top of the list!

We also celebrated the holiday with some fun activities including a game of “Turkey Says”, following along with a directed drawing, and creating our own “Recipe for Cooking a Turkey.” We hope you enjoy these recipes for years to come, they truly brought us so much joy! Your children are hilarious!

Turkey says fly like a bat. Turkey says jump up and down. Turkey says be a bag. Turkey says touch your knee.

Community Helpers!

We had a surprise visit from some Community Helpers on Monday! Officer Davis and Officer Dennis from the Cuyahoga Falls Police Department came to talk to us about dog safety. We then got to meet a very special K-9 named Dan! But the best part was making the sirens and lights go off on the police car!

Thank you Officer Davis for coming to visit us! We were so excited!
Thank you Officer Dennis and Dan for visiting us! We loved learning about K-9 dogs!
Making the lights and sirens go off was the best part!
Haha we were trying to wake up the firefighters next door!


We wrapped up the week with Mr. John’s favorite day of the school year! We all wore our OSU colors to help the Buckeyes get ready for the Big Game this weekend!

We are Thankful for YOU!

Thank you to each of our families, from the bottom of our hearts, for all your help and support. We couldn’t do what we do each day without you. We hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday full of yummy food and beautiful memories!
