This week was all about introducing Thanksgiving and various concepts related to this topic. In order to role play when we danced the “Five Little Indians” song, turtles made an Indian headdress. They enjoyed making it , using glue and pasting some feathers. Also, they had a blast pretending to go “fishing” using some fish with magnets and a “fish pole”.
In creativity class, our turtles had a fun time with play dough.This week they used crayons and also paint to decorate it. Also they made an Indian hand print; they use purple, red, orange and yellow paint for the feathers. They experienced new materials by using markers on a coffee filter and then they sprayed water, and the colors started to mix, they loved it!
On Wednesday we had our Thanksgiving celebration and it was filled with fun, games and happy faces! Tiny turtles loved the Thanksgiving buffet: corn, turkey, cranberries, gravy, mashed potatoes and sweet potatoes. Everything was delicious, and the kiddos enjoyed their tasty meal very much.
Mr. Mike dressed up as a pilgrim and Miss Mely as an Indian. After our yummy snack, we had some fun Thanksgiving games: pasting the feather on the turkey, fishing, and dancing around like indians with some music instruments.
