This week, we had a special field trip planned to visit our local farmer’s market. We have created a vegetable stamp garden to learn about how Vegetables grow. Our visit to the market had 2 purposes. One was to collect items for our Thanksgiving feast. The other was to learn that Farmers grow vegetables in their gardens. There is quite a variety of vegetables that you can buy. Some vegetables are even the same vegetables that the Native Americans would have grown and shared at the First Thanksgiving!
The month of November has been dedicated to learning more about the First Thanksgiving! We’ve been reading some wonderful books to learn about the Native Americans. We learned that they were hunters, fishers, and gardeners.
We created a TeePee with special artwork on it! The kiddos have found the teepee a great place to read, make music, and play.
We build boats, like the Mayflower and we sailed the cross the Sea
We had a great week preparing for Halloween! After our visit to the Pumpkin Patch, we learned so much about pumpkins. We learned that they are cold and slimy inside. We learned that there are LOTS of seeds inside. We measured and compared Apples to Pumpkins! We reviewed our shapes by carving our pumpkin using Circles, Triangles, Squares, and Rectangles!We created spooky mixed up letters along a spider web! The Children had to find all their letters in their name! They loved walking along the webs!We also created a Witches Brew full of Bats, Spiders and Ghouls! We ended our week with a Trick or Treat Walk throughout the Church to visit our Church Friends .
