Thanksgiving 2020

    πŸ‚Throughout the month of November, SMART START celebrated the essence of Thanksgiving. This served as a time to foster feelings of gratitude in our students through a variety of fun festivities. 
We are most thankful to partake in these special formative experiences with our young learners!πŸ‚

Read about our Thanksgiving unit below :
  
    πŸ“šThe history of  the holiday was discussed during both indoor and outdoor storytime times and book displays. 

Here are some facts the class learned:
  • The pilgrims left England and sailed to the "new world"/North America on the Mayflower ship
  • The Mayflower landed in Plymouth, MA and formed a colony. 
  • Life in the new world was difficult for the pilgrims
  • The first Native Americans to help the pilgrims were named Samoset and Squanto.
  • The pilgrims learned how to fish, hunt, plant and more from the Native Americans
  • Both the pilgrims and Native Americans celebrated their gratitude by having a feast together 
  • This meal began the tradition of Thanksgiving 

    🎨Appreciative artists decorated napkin holders using paint, glitter and other materials. The children wrapped their finished product to be given as a gift, saved for Thanksgiving day or to be used as dΓ©cor.


   πŸ–‰Our grateful group gathered in the outdoor classroom to share some thankful thoughts on an "I am thankful" pumpkin chalk board. 


  πŸ“‘  To reinforce the significance of gratitude, classmates compiled a list of what they are "So Very Thankful For" as a homework assignment. These were displayed in our classrooms for all to admire.  


  🍞🧈  Beginner bakers beamed while making school-made bread and butter. Pupils patiently poured all of the ingredients together to bake the bread and used their muscles and a marble to mix the butter. Both tasted delicious!

   πŸ₯•πŸ₯”Festive friends eagerly awaited SMART START's annual "Friendsgiving Feast". All brought in an item to share for the event and participated in preparations at school. 



   πŸ’› Prior to feasting, peers proudly performed a thanksgiving poem. 


   πŸ½  Our memorable meal was a school-wide effort!


Thankful & Grateful for our SMART START families! Without them our school would not be possible🧑
