Thanksgiving Week day #2

Today we went through our usual morning routines, calendar, updating our binders, etc. The children helped me write a letter to our DonorsChoose grantors thanking them for providing our classroom with new games and then we all signed that.  We then had lots of Writer’s Workshop time to make up for having so little yesterday.  

During Literacy Work Stations, my small group worked on blending sounds in words together to make two and three letter words.  My assistant worked with her small group on identifying and naming letters and their sounds.

We then had our Thanksgiving Meal: dsc000093

Here is my class all dressed up!  They were so cute!  It was fun to watch them pass the dishes to each other and to listen to them use their manners at the table.  This meal always brings up a good discussion about appropriate table conversation as well! 🙂

After recess, we graphed our favorite Thanksgiving foods–dessert was the winner (never saw that coming!!) followed by turkey–so if you ever have Kindergartners over to your home for Thanksgiving, you now know what their favorites are! 🙂

We then went to Computer, celebrated a birthday and had Discovery time! 🙂

Tomorrow, we will be weaving fallish placemats for the children to take home, that should take all morning! In the afternoon, we will watch A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving! A favorite of all!
