The kids have been excited this week -- kind of like the day before Christmas or the day after Halloween -- and personally I am ready for a break. So, a short day tomorrow is good news. Luckily we kind of expected the bad weather, so we did most of our Thanksgiving activities already.
I love the little Pilgrim hats!
Then on Friday we made turkeys with Oreos and candy corn. A little messy, but yummy.
Today we made turkey hats. I saw these on Pinterest -- I love Pinterest -- and they turned out so cute!
At the end of the day -- out of time and trying to do too much at once -- I asked them to write "I am thankful for my mom -- or grandma -- or family --". After the children were all gone and the room was quiet, look what I found stuck on the board! (I think "tich" means teacher.) Aww -- how sweet!
And he even started with a capital and ended with a big fat period!
I am thankful for all the hugs I get from this class, all the progress they have made -- and especially for enough energy to keep up with them. And, thank you, God, that the Pilgrims had that feast in November so we can have a break before we jump in to the Christmas season!
