A Feast of Thanks!

We had a lot of fun the past week or so getting to do some Thanksgiving activities!
It really feels like school just started a few weeks ago! My how time flies when you're having fun!

We have a little feast in Kindergarten every year- we have 6 Kindergartens so we partner up and one class is the Native Americans while the other are the Pilgrims. 
We started the feast by making cranberry sauce with the kids- they love listening to the pop as the cranberries cook! While I would've loved to graph and extend this activity, we just didn't have time! ahhhh! Story of my life, right?! Maybe Monday! I know a few of my kids who certainly *won't* remember their distaste for cranberry sauce!

We finished up this place mat craft and writing activity from Kelley over at Teacher Idea Factory. Didn't they turn out great?! Snatch her little packet up and file it for next year!
After our feast I presented each one of my kiddos with a little thankful note- this is the second year that I've done this for my students, and I absolutely love giving them out! All week we've discussed the people and things that we are thankful for. They don't realize how much they all mean to me! Even the little stinkers! I snagged these letters from Erica.
 I know all you teachers out there are already thinking about Christmas. If you're looking for some awesome stations go check my new packet out!

And because I don't post pictures of my students on here- I'll leave you with one of me in my hat! {I cropped out my Pilgrim teammate- I know she would kill me if I put one up of her! haha!}
