>Our Fall Feast…

November 21, 2010

>Our Fall Feast will be this Tuesday (November 23 at 9:30 and 1:15). We are very excited about our feast and activities for the day. We are asking for children to bring in one thing of nuts, fruit, and/or vegetables. We will be having the items you bring in, a little bit of turkey, and milk to drink. To make this day a success we are in need of volunteers to help on this day. If you can volunteer please come a little early to help cut and set out food. I know the children will appreciate your help and they love to see their parents at school! We would love to help Your children have been very busy creating Pilgrim hats, Native American Headbands, Necklaces, and Turkey Plates! We have been studying the various lifestyles of Pilgrims and Native Americans. We have been comparing and contrasting thier life to our ours today. We also have been talking about what we are thankful for and writing about this. This is probably one of my favorite days in Kindergarten! I cannot wait to see the children and take lots of pictures. I will share those with you all once the feast concludes!

>Our Feast…

November 11, 2010

>Those of you new to kindergarten may not know this tradition we have and those of you who are returning kindergarten parents, it’s again that time: The Annual Kindergarten Thanksgiving Feast (November 23 at 9:30 & 1:15). To make this a success we need your help! We ask for you all to help supply the food we eat at the feast. We are in need of the following: nuts, fruits, popcorn, and vegetables. We ask for various types of nuts (almonds, peanuts, cashews, etc.). In regards to the fruits we ask for some traditional fruits and some nontraditional fruits which kids may have not experienced. In the past we have had star fruit, grapefruit, pomegranate, and kiwi. If you can help supply any of these foods, let your child’s teacher know. In addition, we are looking for volunteers to help with set-up, cutting, and serving the kids this day. There will be more information coming out at the beginning of next week!

The kids are getting very excited because we have been reading various thanksgiving books and talking about what we are thankful. We will be making a classbook of the predictable sentence “I am thankful for…” I appreciate your help and look forward to annual feast this year!
