It was great to be back with the Owls today. We had a busy morning learning about turkeys and working on a few projects to prepare for our Annual Thanksgiving Feast next Friday. The boys and girls were busy painting turkeys, counting turkeys, learning that turkey starts with the letter "T", reading books and working on several fine motor activities.
We began working on Native American necklaces to wear with our vests next week to the feast. I was very impressed with the interest the children took in this activity. They spent over a half an hour threading bead after bead onto their strings. They were very pleased with the final results! We also began working on our place mats. We painted our backgrounds and once they are dry we will continue to decorate them.
We finished up our morning learning that turkey starts with "T". We sang a song about it and painted the letter T with q-tips. After going over the song and repeating several times that turkey starts with "T", I asked the class, "What does turkey start with?" To my surprise one of the children said, "Gobble, gobble, gobble!" One of those funny moments that only a three year old can come up with.
Here you will find little snippets of our days together. When my children were in preschool and would come home I would always ask, "So, what did you do today?". All they ever said was, "Played." That didn't tell me much. I hope this blog will be a place to share what we have done and help you ask more directed questions of your child. You will see first hand just what we do after you kiss your little one goodbye in the morning. It will also be a great place to visit and see just how much your child has grown and learned throughout the year.
