Give thanks to the Lord continually in all circumstances.  I Thess. 5:18

Our November lessons are slowly winding up.  We hear from St. Luke the story of the Ten Sick Men and the one who came back to say “Thank you!”.  Our God is so good to us ; he gives us our bodies and then provides the care for them.

In Social Studies we are completing our unit on Communities learning about various Native American communities – homes, clothing, foods, and travel as well as the early Pilgrim community of Plymouth.

Musical experiences have included learning to play the drums, dancing to it’s beat, and acting out song stories especially “Little Red Fox”.

We’ve watched the video THE MOUSE ON THE MAYFLOWER to see the trials and joys of the early Pilgrims as the settled New England in 1620.

Through all these activities we have been into the world of books – THANK YOU BROTHER BEAR by Eric Carle,  IT’S THANKSGIVING DAY by Mary Packard, CLIFFORD’S THANKSGIVING VISIT by Norman Bridwell, THANKS FOR THANKSGIVING by Julie Markes, and the list goes on.

Our week will end on Wednesday with a Chapel service with grades K-8; sharing a Thanksgiving feast with them, and the Turkey Trot.  We will even be tasting the pumpkin pie we made for dessert.

May our Lord grant you a grateful heart and may He rest His hand gently upon you now and always!
