November 19 - 23 Thank you, God! God, our God, has blessed us and we are thankful. People, long ago, at the first Thanksgiving were thankful and so are we today. We are learning the many ways to say thank you - sign language, Spanish, and of course, English. To extend this gratitude, we ask all children to bring 1/2 cup of harvest snack mix (cereal, craisins, pretzels, puffcorn, crackers, etc.) on Monday/Tuesday. As we add our contribution to the bowl and watch it grow, we realize how much we have to be thankful for - good food, family, friends and our faith. Our classroom book entitled, The Book of Thanksgiving will be read and reread this week. It shows the many beautiful reasons we have for which to be thankful. NO SCHOOL on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and next Monday. Classes resume on Tuesday, November 27. Happy Thanksgiving to all! Library visits will be on Thursday/ Fridays. The preschoolers will be able to check out one book and then need to return it before the following library day in order to check out another. A LIBRARY BOX for returns is located outside of the classroom. Boot Season - As we begin to dress in our winter gear, please remember to mark all boots, mittens, hats, etc. with names. Boots may be left in the hallway to keep our classroom floor clean and dry for play. Lunch bunchers may leave their boots by their names outside the Lunch Bunch room.
