During the month of November we’ll be covering “The Harvest” theme, learning about nutrition and different types of food. We are planning field trips to HEB San Pedro during the middle of the month to complement the theme.
Thanksgiving provides a great opportunity to experience food and the concept of sharing. We’ll hold a celebration on Tuesday, November 26th with all groups. Here is a brief history of Thanksgiving:
The Pilgrims left England on September 6, 1620 destined to find a New World that offered both civil and religious liberty. For over two months, the 102 passengers braved the harsh elements of a vast storm-tossed sea. Arriving in Massachusetts in late November, the Pilgrims found a suitable landing place at Plymouth Rock. Assisted by helpful Indians, they reaped a bountiful harvest the following summer. The grateful Pilgrims then declared a three-day feast to thank God and to celebrate with their Indian friends. It was America’s first Thanksgiving Festival.
