You may have seen this cute little project come home recently. 
 The pumpkins have numbers on the bottom, and the students were required to recognize the number, then count out that many stickers and place them in the column.  This was a great project for practicing one-to-one correspondence. At this age, children need to take their counting skills from rote memorization to being able to match numbers and objects. 

We've been learning the story of the first Thanksgiving by reading one of my favorite books of all time:
We did a picture sort and talked about the similarities and differences among the objects that Native Americans and Pilgrims used.  

In preparation for our Thanksgiving feast, we are making Native American costumes that consist of vests, headbands, and necklaces.  

 The kids had a lot of fun creating these colorful necklaces!

Each student also created their own headband by decorating it with markers, and then choosing 6 feathers to attach.  
 The final product:
 The students decorated the vests (made from paper bags) with Native American symbols. 

We are so excited to dress up for the feast on Monday! Our Thanksgiving feast is on November 19, from 9:30 - 11:00am in Krueger Hall.  Please let me know if you would like to volunteer during the event.
