Whole Child: A Thankful Thanksgiving!

November 30, 2017

 

It's hard to believe that December is almost here! We had a great Thanksgiving week last week with our kiddos on Monday and Wednesday. 

 

We started both of our days with talking about the word "Thankful" and what it means to be thankful as well as some of the things we're thankful for. Some of our friends said that during Thanksgiving we eat a big meal and have fun with our families!

 

A few of the things our friends mentioned they were thankful for were "My Gorilla Family," "All the people of the world," and "Mixing up colors"! After talking about what we were thankful, we each had a chance to draw or write what we said in our floor book.

 

 Once we were done discussing what we were thankful for, we wanted to make something to take home to show our families just how thankful we are! We made Thankful Mobiles so we could draw or paint and hang each thing we were thankful for.

 

We also painted wooden blocks to hang from our mobiles as well as attached small bells to the ends of the strings. We talked about how each time we heard the bells ring or the blocks tap together, their sounds could help us remember what we were thankful for!
