Thanksgiving Fun

This week the Dolphins are talking about Thanksgiving. Each day this week we will be reading a story about Thanksgiving and making foods we all enjoy to eat on Thanksgiving day. Today the children enjoyed making cranberry sauce and they are excited to share all the foods we make with their families on friday.  This is a special time of the year for us all. Focusing on what we are thankful for and sharing time with our loved ones is what makes it so special. 

Using our senses to explore cranberries made this activity so much fun. Hands on activities to explore new things is how children learn. 

Learning where cranberries grow. 

Looking at and touching the cranberry, the children come to their own conclusions of what it looks and feels like.

What does it smell like? The children had many responses. Ms. Kelly and I really enjoyed what the children had to say.

They all got to taste for themselves if they like cranberries or not.

 Sorting the cranberries 

The children were really excited to see the many colors of a cranberry.

Take a look at Wednesdays blog. Ms. Kelly will include the recipe for homemade cranberry sauce. 

There is lots of learning going on in the Dolphin class and I am so thankful for our classroom families that they entrust Ms. Kelly and I to teach thier children new things everyday.
