The past couple of weeks we talked about Thanksgiving and being thankful.  The children shared what their families do for Thanksgiving and learned 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 a lot of fun responses.

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

I want to send a big thank you  to all the parents who volunteered to bring supplies in to make the Harvest Party a success!
