Our circle time was a busy time with reading books on the tradition of Thanksgiving and children sharing their personal stories on how they celebrate Thanksgiving with their families. We also spoke about being grateful for our blessings.
Students enjoyed the special apple tasting and studying parts and life cycle of an apple. In art, the children enjoyed making art work with corn, fall leaves and pin poking turkeys and scarecrows. Our unit study on North America was great fun and informative. Students learned about the major countries of the continent, their iconic landforms and places.
We were graced by a visit from Margaret Read McDonald, who is renowned children's author. She read stories written by her in her own unique and child-friendly way. Our Spanish class with Mr. Shawn was about honing vocabulary of the names of animals, colors and common phrases and greetings. Our art teacher, Ms. Michelle, did some wonderful winter landscapes.
Next month we look forward to enjoying festivities around the world, learning about winter season and studying animal hibernation.
