The munchkins have been working hard to prepare for our Thanksgiving Feast that takes place tomorrow. They have learned some fun, cute songs to sing and made some cute owls and turkeys as decorations. I am a little bit nervous as to how everything will play out. Our Montessori Preschool has 52 families...and almost all of them will be participating in the feast tomorrow. That is a whole lot of people... easily over 100 people will be there. So, I have been juggling teaching and some party planning these past 2 weeks or so! But it should all be fun!
And since it is the season of giving thanks, it was the perfect time to talk about what all of us are thankful for: Our Families! So we learned all about Nuestras Familias in Spanish Class.
One of the books I read was "The Family Book" by Todd Parr, It is in English, but was simply translated. It is a nice book to portray different types of families. And the cute word wall cards were purchased from Primary French Immersion.
We learned the names of all family members:
And then we focused on the immediate family members (that may or may not live in the same house),
to prep for our drawing activity.
Each student drew their family members and I am so happy and impressed with how cute they came out.
A few of my older kids labeled their portraits themselves!
I have framed them all with colorful construction paper and they will all be displayed for tomorrow's Thanksgiving Feast!
I think I need an early bedtime tonight, seeing as tomorrow may going to be a huge, busy, chaotic day!
