Hello Orange Room families!

We are wishing you all a very Happy Thanksgiving! We are Thankful for You!

This week we continued reading our stories about Thanksgiving. After snack, I put out a basket of all the books from the book fair that you kindly donated to the classroom. Everyone enjoyed the new choices so much! The children really liked the Thankful Song (link listed above)! We played rain-stick style corn shakers along with the music. For a fun fine motor activity we made play-dough turkeys by rolling the dough into a ball, then adding the turkey head, and golf tees as the feathers.

We made Thanksgiving hats, creating a pattern on the headband with our color and shapes of the month for September, October & November. The children told us what they are Thankful for, so sweet! They also told us what they would make if they cooked a Thanksgiving Dinner. The menus included: turkey, rice, corn, broccoli, spaghetti, hot fudge sundae, meatballs, french fries, and pies! I may have to make the rounds to all, Lol!

Lately, we have had some clothes items mixed up and going home in the wrong backpacks. With everyone now wearing multiple layers, please label sweaters, jackets, boots etc. and we'll do our best to keep track of what belongs to who!

We'll see you back again on Monday, November 28, enjoy the extra time at home together until then!

With Sincere Appreciation,

Ms. Terry :)

Notes & Reminders:

November 23-25: Thanksgiving Holiday Break


I am blown away by your kindness and generosity! On behalf of the orange room crew, we THANK YOU So Much for your donations of books to the classroom! We will enjoy them all with your children, and could not be more appreciative!

A Note re: Classroom Gifting

I am so thankful for your kindness always! As the holidays and gift giving season approaches, please know that in lieu of personal gifts (other than pictures drawn by the children, or a homemade art item) I prefer items the whole class can benefit from and enjoy!

We can always use stickers, hand wipes, tissues, Clorox/Cleaning Wipes and such. I always search for good quality learning toys, games, dramatic play, fine motor/art tools and books to add to our classroom...with that in mind, gift cards to Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Dollar Stores or local department stores helps provide items all the children can use!

With Sincere Appreciation, Ms. Terry
