Our classroom turkey is a beautiful bird filled with thankful thoughts. Thank you to all our families for participating in this project. Everyday we walk by it and we are reminded of our blessings. It also ties in with our monthly theme, friendship. Mrs. Lokke, our lower school counselor, visited us and helped the children see how friends meet in the middle or compromise (a great word!).
The book Pout-Pout Fish and the Big, Big Dark helped us see how friends can encourage each other, even when something seems scary.
We also read a book in the Stuart J. Murphy series, Emma's Friendwich, which helped us think about how to approach a friend to play. We walked through the steps of smiling, asking to play, and sharing to enter play with a new friend.
Happy Thanksgiving! December is coming up fast... December means holidays and skating!! Let's get out on that ice! More information to come...
