Happy Thanksgiving!

I pray that you all will have a great time celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday with your family and friends. As Christians we have a lot to be thankful for and Thanksgiving is a great time to remember our blessings. Last week, we read “If you are thankful and you know it” and “Thankful” and listed items that we are thankful for. We also talked about how we can share our blessings with others. Our class decorated/ created/ drew lots of turkeys last week! Check out our bulletin board display for what we gave thanks for. We learned how to draw a turkey in a fun and easy way with our Grade 4 buddies.

Turkey Headband: Our students each made a turkey headband to celebrate Thanksgiving. To make this activity more interesting, students have to think how to change a square into a triangle for the turkey’s beak, to cut a square into two circles to make its eyes, and to cut a circle into two semi-circles to form its wattle.

Bible– We completed God’s Creation booklets, and we talked about Adam and Eve last week. This month our Bible focus is on Noah and how God keeps his promises. Since most students know this story really well, we will be acting out the story together.  This should be a fun and kinesthetic way to learn a familiar story.
