This eye catching hall display is a Thanksgiving paper quilt made by 6 kindergarten classes.
Another ambitious project
was spread out over two days. They were thank you cards to the kidpack organization. In case you are not familiar with term kidpack it is an organization that provides each student in qualifying schools on Fridays with a small pack of non-perishable food items for the weekend. Volunteers from local business and churches pack items and then they are delivered to school and distributed.
The turkey's feathers were made with fingerpaints. On the other side of the card each student printed the sentence Thank you for the kidpack. Then they signed their name.
Sounds simple? Maybe not as many steps were required but you have to admire how earnest each one works on the task at hand and so proud of their completed work. I might also add lots of pre-preparation is involved to implement this project.
The concept of place one and only one finger into one color paint and dab it on paper-clean finger and use another color to dab on paint repeating process mystified many :)
(easy peasy in my estimation) Thank you cards for two volunteers-so only two cards were needed.
What I liked best about these two projects was stressing the importance how good it is to write and thank people who do things for you.
Oh, and in between all this fun stuff, was working on how to write the number 4 and word four, going to centers and reading. They were busy.
