November Things

I realized today that I have not posted in 10 days.  I guess I have been busy.  I took a bunch of pictures of the things we have been doing so far this month.  We started a Thanksgiving unit and a unit on the five senses.  
This is our thankful tree.  I made the kids handprints with paint in fall colors. Every morning durning breakfast they each tell me one thing they are thankful for and then we add it to the tree.

We colored a picture of the Mayflower.

We talked about the Pilgrims coming to a new land.

And the Indians who were there to help them.

These are the cornucopias we made.  It was cute hearing Tiger Boy try to say cornucopia.

Our activity today was on this book.
I know an Old Lady who Swallowed a Pie by Alison Jackson

We made an old lady,

and filled her belly with all the things we thought she could swallow.  The kids really had fun with this activity.  They enjoyed finding things for her to swallow.

I forgot to take pictures of us doing things with the five senses that we have worked on. I had it in my mind today, but then Sugar Plum spilled rice that was inside an egg for part of our lesson on sounds all over the floor .  So I had to clean that up and I forgot all about the pictures.
