Let’s give thanks! Today we are reflecting and expressing everything we are thankful for! Waddle on over to join in on the festive holiday activities and learn the meaning of giving thanks!  

Purpose Behind the Play: Literacy and communication, language development, social emotional development, number concepts, gross and locomotor practice, and science cognition  
  • Smart Art (Times Vary)Thankful Tree > Thankfulness is an important expression and feeling for children to understand. Stop by the Art Studio where your little one can decorate and add a leaf for our Community Art Project, the Thankful Tree.   
  • Sensational Story Time (11:30 am): One Little, Two Little, Three Little Pilgrims > Ten Little Pilgrims are getting ready for the harvest feast. Join us in Orange Plaza to read this fun counting story. After the story, children will make a turkey craft to take home using ten feathers for its tail.

Grown-Up Tip: Write a special note for each family member. Help your little one by starting the note with “I am thankful to you for _____.”  Place each note on the Thanksgiving table and share why your little one is thankful for each family member. Your child will learn that reading and writing is meaningful and that words have significance.
