We had a great time celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday by making turkeys using a potato, cut in half, for the turkey body, and green peppers that were cut in half for his feathers! We stamped everything in paint and had a great sensory experience! Then we finished our turkeys up with some google eyes, and cutting out some legs, a waddle and beaks to make him look like an awesome Tom turkey!
We had a great time wrapping up our pumpkin unit by pretending we were chefs and baking Pumpkin Muffins! First we each got to put an ingredient in and then we each had a great time stirring our batter! Then we helped put the batter in the tins and baked our muffins in the church oven. They tasted delicious! We are awesome chefs!
We loved celebrating Scarecrow Day on Friday! We made Scarecrow cookies, and took our picture with our face inside a giant scarecrow body too! We also did a Scarecrow cut and paste sheet that challenged our scissor and critical thinking skills!
But the most fun thing we did was make Scarecrows that looked like US! We cut out the pants and glued on the faces and shirts and then it was time to get messy! We used a LOT of glue to put the “straw”where our hands, and feet would be! We can’t show you the finished product right now, but stop by the JW entrance-way sometime next week and take a peek at us!
We had so much fun acting out one of our favorite stories in God’s Special book, The Bible. it was Noah and the Ark! First we had to make our animal masks…
Then one day we were surprised to see Noah right in our hallway! He told us how one day he was praying and God said Noah, you are going to build a big boat! (also called an ark!) Noah, of course was really Mrs. Vowles! We laughed when we saw her in disguise as Noah!
When we walked into our classroom there it was! A homemade ark! (We were using our imaginations of course!) We started going through its door two by two with our animal partner!
While we were on the ark we talked about how noisy and maybe even how stinky it might have been, as we listened to the rain…(it was really a rain CD that Mrs. Schoon was playing)! Then, when the thunder and rain stopped we got off the ark…..and there was the rainbow that God put in the sky as His promise to never flood the earth again! It was so pretty! We took a look at it and than sat down for a big picture of us to remember our special day!
