I week: Monday

This morning was a great preschool morning. We did our computer and chart time. Connor is really getting good at "reading" the days of the week. He knows which day is which by what letter it starts with.

We read two books: The Iguana Brothers by Tony Johnston and Up Along Down Along Under Over by Diane Wilmer. I thought I had Inside Outside Upside-Down, but I don't. So we read that one instead. We didn't really talk about opposites as planned because Connor wasn't digging that idea.

So we made Thanksgiving pictures for family. I had printed a little turkey poem on cardstock and then we traced Connor's hand and drew a beak, gobble gobble, eye, and feet on each one. We made 8 of them and put them in the mail to all Connor's grandparents and cousins and aunts and uncles wishing them a Happy Thanksgiving!

When we looked at the calendar and I showed him that Thursday was Thanksgiving, Connor said, "Ya! I love Thanksgiving!" I'm not sure he even remembers it, but I love his enthusiasm!

Here's the Turkey Poem:

This isn’t just a turkey
as you can plainly see,
I made it with my hand
which is a part of me.
It comes with lots of love,
especially to say,
“I hope you have a very
Happy Thanksgiving Day!”

Gram and Gramps loved their turkey card and put it on the refrigerator.
