We are thankful in the OC! - Teacher Christine

It's turkey time in the OC! We had so much fun with your children making fall themed art, telling the story of stone soup, and hearing all about what your children are thankful for.

On Monday they made adorable owls using egg cartons, colorful feathers, and googly eyes. These are in our display case outside of the classroom. Take a peek!

We played a collaborative game called Sneaky Snacky Squirrel on Monday. Games are a great way to practice turn taking, collaboration, color identification, and counting!

On Wednesday and Friday, each child made a hand print turkey for their thankful page. They were so patient as our parent helper painted their hand. On Friday, they added turkey features and we wrote down what they are thankful for.

On Wednesday, the children used a turkey with a magnetic beak to pick up letters for"alphabet soup". Before putting the letter in the pot, they identified the letter, the sound, and thought up some words that might start with the letter!

We acted out the story of Stone Soup on Wednesday at circle time with each child getting to put something in our soup pot. On Friday the children worked hard to cut up vegetables to make real stone soup! We enjoyed the soup together at snack time. :)

The children practiced scrubbing and cutting up real veggies in the water tub.

Here's a look at your children playing around the room!

They are so busy at our creation and writing stations. It's pretty exciting to see the books, cards, and art that they are making. 

Circle time was a lot of fun this week. We sang songs about turkeys, owls, and squirrels as well as one of our favorites - "Shake That Sticky Stuff Off". We read Livingston Mouse, Those Darn Squirrels, and a fun story about a mouse and an apple.

We celebrated a special birthday, too!

We also did the bean bag dance. :)

Recess is a great way to get our wiggles out. These sweet kiddos love to run, run, run! 

We are so thankful for all of you! We truly appreciate your wonderful children and all of the time that you spend with us at school.

Christine and Meghan
