"It's Almost Time For Thanksgiving, It's almost time for a Feast!!"

I LOVE Thanksgiving in K.  We've done many things that we've done in past years, you can check them out out on the blog.  Here are a few new things this year!

My Kiddos were the Pilgrims for our feast this year, so we made Pilgrims.  The girl's bonnet is 1/3 of the paper plate rim with center cut out.  Use the center on the back of the hat to make the bonnet puffy.  The neck on both the boy and girl was about a 1/4 of the plate rim.  Glue the point behind a pink or flesh colored circle.  Boy hats were just back construction paper.  I let them use markers to decorate their Pilgrims!  Fun project and easy. 

This year I found a Martha Stewart hat pattern on Pinterest.  Loved it!!!
Here is the link~ Pilgrim bonnett. :)  It was easy and turned out so cute!!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your families!!  Christmas is coming soon!!  I think I'm starting a new tradition with a stuffed Gingerbreadman.  He will be a bit like the elf on the shelf.  

Be sure to check out Dr. Jean's Happy Everything for some fun Thanksgiving songs.  We are done until Dec.:)

My K kiddos paired with 4th grade to do some pumpkin study!  What a fun morning it was.

We drew some pumpkins.

 We tasted pumpkin in a can, pumpkin bread, and pumpkin seeds.

We estimated pumpkin seeds.  The big one had 403 and small one had 223, we didn't count the gourd...

 We counted pumpkin lines.

We tested to see if a pumpkin could sink or float...  It floats!  I learned something new! :)

We measured several pumpkins with cubes, chains, inches, and feet.

At the end, the kiddos put together a book with their findings.  It was a fun morning! Each pair had a sheet so they could record their findings and they each got their own book.   When the kiddos were all finished, we read Liz Curtis' book, The Pumpkin Patch Parable and made a Happy pumpkin.
Happy fall to all!!
