 The letter G and its sound brought many fun lessons to us last week.  Gavin, God, gorilla, gum, gingerbread, garage, game, and grapes were some words that we either discussed or the children came up with during the week.  We also talked about being grateful and what that means. We sponge painted huge gingerbread men and then went shopping to decorate them how we chose.  We made beautiful autumn trees by painting them with cotton balls and we also made gumball machines. Both crafts are up in our room so we can admire our work. The gingerbread men are resting until Christmas comes closer. When we made our gumball machines we practiced our counting to five using 1 to 1 correspondence. We were scientist when we used magnifying glasses to look closely at our leaves that we collected. Our play doh table has been helping us with our fine motor.  We also had fun with some floating toys at our water table. Trying new things is always exciting.  Green grapes and gingerbread cookies (A Gingerbread Family) were a special snack.  We might even have some more gingerbread cookies for this week.  We watched the  beginning of Brother Francis - How to Pray from our Formed website. Brother Francis and friends went over how to bless ourselves with a fun tune, "In the name of the Father and of the son....." Goodnight Gorilla and The Gingerbread Man,  were our favorite stories.  Definitely The Gingerbread Man.  We Read or watched that everyday.  The children loved the rhyme. We celebrated Lauren's birthday on Friday and that was great. We thank God for our families daily during morning prayer.

Letter H is this week. The Letter is H and the sound is /h/,  /h/ /h/ h/.  We will add it to our chant and continue to talk about being thankful.  We have some fun turkey crafts that will be made in a special way.  We will talk about what a  cornucopia is and make one as one of our crafts.  It reminds us of all the good things that God has given us. We will continue to talk about our families and what we do together.  We will also add the song "God Bless America" to our morning routine.  We will dance to the "Turkey Hokey Pokey," If Your Thankful and You Know It," "Five Little Turkeys," and a few more. Our Scholastic News will be about being thankful.  Creating a thankful autumn cross with watercolors will add to our theme. We will rip some paper to help with our fine motor and our color this week is purple.  Some of us are still working on our special alphabet stamp book and Saint Francis page.
