It has been such an exciting year and we are learning so much! The students are learning the story of Thanksgiving and how important it was for the settlers and the Native Americans to work together. The Native Americans taught the settlers how to grow their crops correctly and where to hunt and fish. The settlers were so grateful to the Native Americans that they invited them to a Thanksgiving dinner. That was the first Thanksgiving! We discussed many things that we are grateful for in kindergarten and created turkeys with our thoughts of gratitude on the turkey's feathers.

Let your child practice using scissors, holding a pencil correctly, tracing lines, tracing letters and numbers, playing with play dough (have them make letters or numbers with the Play dough), putting beads on pipe cleaners. Developing these fine motor skills are essential in Kindergarten.
