In the month of November, the Amarillo class began our study of foods and nutrition. We sampled different apple flavors, and chose our favorites. For Thanksgiving, we made a friendship fruit salad from everyone's favorite fruits and enjoyed it together.
We will continue our discussion of healthy foods in December, and hope to do some food preparation together as well. We will also look at the different holidays that people celebrate in the month of December.
We have enjoyed some rather wet recesses lately; the children often choose to change socks or pants after recess. Thank you, parents, for keeping your child's clothing box stocked with changes of clothes to facilitate those changes. Please remember to put your child's name on any garment that comes to school so that we are able to reunite any stray jacket, sweater, or mittens with the correct owner!
At this time of year I take time to reflect on the many blessings in my life. The opportunity to work with your children each day is certainly one of those blessings! Thank you for your support and your trust. I wish you all happiness and peace as we enter what is for many people a very busy time of year.
