This week was our Thanksgiving Theme in Preschool. It's a little early for you American readers but us Canadians are celebrating this weekend. I'll enjoy some turkey and stuffing for you. ;)
Thanksgiving is... - Gail Gibbons
A Pioneer Thanksgiving- Barbara Greenwood
One is a Feast for a Mouse- Judy Cox
An Old Fashioned Thanksgiving- Louisa May Alcott
Using cinnamon play dough, we made turkeys. Along with the play dough I set out card stock beaks, feathers, googly eyes and pipe cleaners.
It was a short week for us this week because we spent two amazing days at a friends' farm.
Baking: That will be happening this weekend as the kids and I help grandma prepare for our Sunday dinner.
Painting/ Drawing: I printed out this how to draw a turkey page for the kids. They traced the steps in the boxes and then attempted their own.
Craft: The kids have been very interested in plasticine illustrations since seeing it in a book last week so we tried our hands at that this week. We made Thanksgiving turkeys.
The worksheets I used for this week all came from this Thanksgiving Printable Pack. We used the pre-writing, shape tracing and cutting practice pages from the tot pack. We also did a Turkey Do a Dot page.
