Celebration of The Thanksgiving Day: November 27, 2008


Today was Thanksgiving Day, so while Jeana and the other staff cooked up a turkey and all the trimmings in the morning, Tim and Lynette and the kids watched a video of "The Grinch Whole Stole Christmas" in the Toddlers room.

(Shoei.S. was very perplexed about why the Grinch suddenly decided to take everything back to town.)

We had a lovely Thanksgiving dinner of roast turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, mixed vegetables, and a desert of apple sauce and ice cream. The Kinders made the apple sauce on Tuesday in cooking class.

It was Julian's day off, but he came and joined us for lunch.

The tables were decorated with the turkey placemats that the kids created in craft class yesterday. They looked great.

And in the afternoon, we recycled the turkeys by cutting them out and using them as our T craft for the T worksheet page.

After lunch, Carol and Tim played games with the Toddlers, while Lynette read the Stella Luna book to the Rompers in conclusion of the unit we did on Bats.

And Jeana did a draw and write with the Kinders on "I'm Thankful for..."

At about 1:30 we all got back together for a goodbye for Tim in the main room. The kids gave him their cards and some flowers and he read a couple of stories and then said a few words. Everyone was sad to say goodbye.
