We have so many blessings to be thankful for, as we approach Thanksgiving. We are thankful to our dear Savior Jesus Christ. “I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart; I
will tell of all your wonderful deeds.” Psalm 9:1
Our class reflected on what we were thankful for. The children said they were thankful to Jesus, for their parents and all that they do for them, Trinity Lutheran Church and School, friends, and food.
During Religion, we listened to God’s Word and learned about Moses and the Ten Commandments. The children learned that the Ten Commandments are God’s Laws that were written on two tables of stone. “For by grace you are saved, through faith; and not of
yourselves; it is the gift of God.” Ephesians 2:8
In phonics, the children have practiced their letter sounds with special hand motions. In reading, they have been working on reading beginner books. They have listened to stories about friendship and kindness.
For handwriting, they wrote the alphabet with a dry erase marker and board. In math, we have worked on writing our numbers to twenty with a dry erase marker and board. We count to one hundred every day and have started counting by fives and tens. We have also practiced our one-to-correspondence by using manipulatives. One of the manipulatives that we use are Unifex cubes. They also love playing games like Chutes and Ladders, Hi-Ho Cheerio and Candy Land.
In social studies, we learned about the occupation of a police officer. The children found out how police officers keep us safe and enforce the law. We also learned about the job of a postal worker and how they collect and deliver mail to our homes and businesses.
In science, they learned about the life cycle of a turkey that begins with an egg, hatches and grows to a poult, and then a turkey.
In art, the children made fall leaf pictures. They rolled red tissue paper and glued it on a leaf. Then they sprinkled red glitter on top to make a sparkling fall leaf.
For Choir, the children have been practicing their songs with Mrs. Sprengeler. On November 16th, the children sang for the Trees and Treasures Festival at the Boone County Hospital. On Saturday, December 7th, the children will be singing at the Festival of Hope and the Habitat for Humanity Nativity Festival.
Our time with the middle school students is always a highlight for our kindergarteners. The
middle school students and the parents helped the kindergarteners carve a pumpkin. Then we got to enjoy some delicious fall snacks.
For our field trip, we went with the preschool class and walked around the Boone town. We got to see Casey’s Gas Station, the medical equipment store, and a hair salon. The children learned that there are different jobs that people do and they are all important.
On November 25, we will have our Thanksgiving Feast with the preschool class. Everyone will bring something to eat and share. We will act out what happened at the first Thanksgiving in America.
