Happy Thanksgiving & Happy Birthday!

We have been so busy learning about Thanksgiving!  We have had so much fun, though!  I truly LOVE this time of year!  It seems the kiddos are really into school and learning and WANT to know all about the first Thanksgiving and the pilgrims!  I also LOVE hearing about what they are thankful for!  It truly warms my heart!  I LOVE this age!!!
We learned about the pilgrims long ago and how we are still the same today and how we are different.

They REALLY enjoyed learning about the Mayflower and what life was like for the pilgrims on that journey!

We learned the parts of a turkey and made our can, have, are chart!

Here are our Five Fat Turkeys hanging up in the room!

LOVE the leaf-pile kids!  They turned out so cute!  They wrote about fall!

Here are our turkeys....trying not to get eaten!  My favorite is Eat more cucumbers!  Ha!

We made pilgrims and Native Americans!  Both turned out precious!

It says.....I am thankful for my teacher.  She teaches me lots of stuff.  I love math workstations!  I love you too Chloe!
Here are the little turkeys!




Finally, we had our first classroom birthday!
Happy Birthday, Carson!
I hope you had a wonderful birthday!
I love that sweet girl!

Happy Thanksgiving to your families!  I hope you count your blessings and have a wonderful relaxing day!

We have been SUPER busy monkeys, lately!  Here is some of the fall fun happening in our room!
We had lots of fun labeling the parts of our apples!

We are sooo thankful we can now read sooo many words!

We made these AWESOME scarecrows!  Just wait 'till you read the book on his belly!

Our Indians were a lot of fun to make!  We are working on reading and writing our number words!

We LOVE the rhyme Five Fat Turkeys!  They loved making the trees and the turkeys!!!

Here we are on Veterans Day!
We had a lot of fun making our veterans and flags!

I had to go home sick that day....YUCK!! So our writing did not get done....which made me sad!

Stay tuned.....pilgrims and the Mayflower coming up!  I love this time of year!!!
