As I've mentioned before, I love my crock pot meals! They are great for busy days. Plus the house always smells so good!
Kathleen and I got busy early with our learning today. we talked more about Native Americans and Thanksgiving. First we made a teepee after discussing the early symbols they used to communicate. She tried to copy some on her teepee as well
After completing the artwork we rolled it up and stapled it.
Next we got busy working on our turkeys, gobble,gobble
I drew the circles so she could color them brown, then cut out shapes for her to design her turkey
We also learned some new songs/ finger plays
We go to Grandma's on Thanksgiving Day.
Mom helps cook while we run and play (pretend to run)
When dinner is ready, I wash my face, (pretend to wash face)
Then sit at the table in my special place (sit)
After we say the blessing, (fold hands)
We eat lots of turkey and dressing (pretend to eat)
For dessert we always have a treat,
because pumpkin pie is so good to eat. ( rub stomach)
Mrs. turkey, a pretty fat hen, (curve arms at side, stand tall)
Lives with other turkeys in a pen.
They spend the day talking turkey talk, (open and close hand)
"gobble, gobble, gobble"
strutting proudly as they walk,
wobble,wobble,wobble. (place hands under arms, move elbows)
A few more quotes for the day:
"God teaches the birds to make nests, yet the nests of all birds are not alike."
"Prejudice blinds, ignorance retards, indifference deafens, hate amputates. In this way do some people disable their souls."
Mary Robinson (1944-)
"Freedom is the right to choose:the right to create for yourself the alternatives of choice. Without the possibility of choice and the exercise of choice, human beings are not human but instruments."
Archibald MacLeish (1892-1982)
"Consciously we teach what we know;unconsciously we teach who we are."
Have a great evening!
