I hope you all enjoyed a happy holiday weekend with family or friends. I wanted to share with you what the PreK students are thankful for at this time of year. A fun way to record their thoughts and ideas was by writing on feathers that we added to our bulletin board turkey.
The process (which in preschool is always more important than the final product) was several steps long. The first step was to listen and answer the question. Then, using colored pencils, to decorate or color the feather. Last was to cut out the feather and choose a spot on the turkey to attach it.
This exercise was interesting in that students gave a variety of answers and it spurred conversation about how lucky we all are to have so many wonderful things in our lives. We talked about those less fortunate and ways that we can help others. Our class understands compassion and being thankful, and for this, I am a thankful teacher. Here are their answers.
