Let Gives Thanks...

On Monday, we started our Thanksgiving unit by talking about being thankful. We discussed that Thanksgiving is a special day that we thank God for everything. 

Tuesday, we read a story about Thanksgiving. We learned about the Mayflower, Pilgrims, and Native Americas. After, the children made a Mayflower and shared one thing that they learned from our story. 


Here is a peek at the jobs that the children are completing.

Rhyming Fun

This week we have been focusing on nursery rhymes and rhyming words. We started off by reading Humpy Dumpty and listened for the rhyming words.Then we made our own Humpty. 

 
On Tuesday, we retold the nursery rhyme of Humpty Dumpty. We talked about if there was anyway an egg could fall and not break. Then we did an egg experiment. 
The children had tons of fun during the experiment. 

Wednesday, we learned another rhyme and then acted it out..."Jack Be Nimble". The children enjoyed jump over a "candlestick". As we took turns jumping we said the rhyme with our name instead of Jack.



Yesterday we read "Jack and Jill". We identified the rhyming words Jill and hill and then used letter cards to come up with other rhyming words.
After we played rhyming BINGO. 
Here is a peek at the jobs that the children completed this week:

Kitchen Fun...

This week we kicked off our unit by reading Good Enough to Eat
 
 We explored how our body needs food and what type of food it needs by looking at the Food Pyramid. 
After, we sort healthy and non healthy food. We discussed how unhealthy food is just meant to eat on occasion. 

Yesterday, the Memphis Botanic Gardens came and talked to the children about what's a fruit and what's a veggie. The children sorted them, made a veggie person, and planted a spinach seed. 

Today, we made shape pizzas. We started by "making" our crust and then adding the sauce. I gave out the "topping" to each table, and each child picked how many of each shape they wanted. 
After the children made their pizza, they had to record how many of each shape they used.
