November begins with thoughts and conversations about family, friends, and exploring the word gratitude. This concept ties in with our work that we have been doing around creating our community. We will write, draw pictures, and interview each other about what things we are thankful for.
Our community care project this month interfaces with caring for others as we make cheerful placements and cards for our friends at Bellingham.
November 24th at 10:00am families are invited to join us for a special Meeting for Worship. This is a great way to connect and begin the Thanksgiving spirit of caring and sharing. Hope to see everyone there.
Our academics will spiral around our Thanksgiving theme. We will learn about the first Thanksgiving and the Pilgrims journey on the Mayflower from England. Our letter sounds with be "Gg", "Hh", "Ii", and the "th" blend sound.
In math we continue to build our understanding of numbers, graphs, and patterns.
Our science unit about Fall continues with a focus on harvesting food and healthy eating.
On November 14th we will take our next class trip to the Newlin Grist Mill. This is quite an adventure as the children observe the gears and water supplying the energy for the big wheel to turn. In class we will use our big gear set to design our own moving unit to explore the concept of how gears work.
On November 25th we will enjoy a friendship snack to represent our collaboration of food and friends. True to the lyrics of "As We Leave This Friendly Place," enjoy the Thanksgiving Holiday.
Live, laugh, and love joyfully.
In friendship, Teacher Kara
