Happy Thanksgiving to all of our Kindergarten families!!!  I am so grateful to be in such a great partnership with all of you and your children.  Thank you for all you do for your children and for our classroom!  We have been learning so much about the pilgrims journey over on The Mayflower.  We have seen what a pilgrim and native american village would have looked like.  Been able to see a day in the life of a pilgrim and native american family and the clothes they wore.  Ask your child what their favorite part about life long ago for the pilgrims and native americans is.
When we return from Thanksgiving break we will begin learning about Holidays Around the World.  The Holiday season is quickly approaching.  One of my favorite things to teach during the holiday season is Holidays Around the World in December.  We learn about how children and families all over the world celebrate during their holiday season and the customs that go along with them.  If you are interested in sharing a custom that you are familiar with from another country with our classroom please let me know which country, and day/time works best for you!  Some of the countries we learn about are: Mexico, Germany, Sweden, Italy, France, England, United States, etc.  If there is a country that you know a lot about that is not on this list, we would love to learn about even more countries and their customs!!!  Please let me know if you have any questions and thank you for considering!
