The past couple of weeks we talked about the Pilgrims and Indians.  The class found out the Pilgrims came from England to our country for religious freedom.  We read many books about what the Pilgrims experienced during their journey on the Mayflower and once they landed at Plymouth Rock.

We also talked about Thanksgiving and being thankful.  The children shared what their families do for Thanksgiving and learn that we all have our own traditions.  We talked about why the Pilgrims and Indians ate a meal together. Each child shared what they were thankful for to create a classroom thankful turkey.  We got responses from mom and dad, to pets, to sandwiches and chickens.

I want to send a big thank you  to all the parents who volunteered to bring supplies in and  to lend a helping hand at the Harvest Party!

Work Time

Color Box 4: This child is grading different colors from darkest to lightest, while also refining his sense of sight.
Circuit Board: These children are creating a circuit (a pathway made of wires) that electrons can flow through. The batteries are giving the power source the electrons needed to move. When the electrons get to the light bulb it gives it the power needed to make it work.
Number Rods: This child is experiencing the qualities of each number and learning their names and what each quantity physically looks like.
Log Numbers: This child is memorizing the sequence of numbers from 1 to 10. While also refining his fine motor skills by stringing the numbers onto the rope.
Dot Board: These children are doing dynamic addition (a sum with exchanging) problems using the dot board. They are practicing addition at a higher level of abstraction.
