Yep... it's here. The day we set aside each year to be thankful. Hopefully, everyone remembers to be thankful on all the other days of the year as well. In my fourth grade classroom we spend lots of time remembering how grateful we are for all our good fortune. We try to share ourselves with others during this time.
This year, we were invited to our preschooler's "Friendship Feast". What a wonderful event it was! Before we joined the wee ones in their room for the celebration, we decided we should make "friendship bracelets" for each of them. What fun! Creating patterns... stringing beads... admiring our fine work...
Aren't they beautiful? The children... all of them... were delighted!
Another Thanksgiving tradition in my classroom is to write "Tall Turkey Tales". What a hoot! Here are some fun ones...
This is Tony Turkey... the strongest turkey in the yard... notice his well developed abdominal muscles... now that's what I call a "six pack"... nope... an "eight pack"!
Next is our beauty of the yard... Tabitha.
Isn't she gorgeous!!! She certainly has a lot of gobblers chasing her around the coop. In fact, one of her beaus gave her that lovely jeweled necklace. Tabitha currently holds the title of "Miss Gobbler Delight"!
Our school puts on a Grandfriends' program each Thanksgiving. What a treat to hear the angelic voices of children singing to their grand friends and families. Then we have punch and cookies in the classroom and show off all our hard work...
I am thankful to be a part of such a wonderful community of families.
I hope that each and every one of you takes the time to enjoy your blessings.
