Letter "T" ta ta ta, turkeys, turtles Tuesday, Thanksgiving

This morning after opening exercises, We mad a triangle turkey and decorated it with triangle colored feathers.

 Then I I told the kids the letter "T" story about Tricky Turkey and her adventures.She wore a tutu with a tie, she had ten feathers in her tail, two teeth and a tongue.  She was called "Tricky" because she did all sorts of tricks.  She could play a tambourine

and punch out 911 on the telephone with her toes

and she could tumble

 Then we had a worksheet that had words that began with "t" sounds such as tiger, toothbrush
 taco and television
 the sheets were put inside a plastic cover so that they could circle the pictures, wipe them off and put them away for another time.

We talked about the story of Tom  Turkey learning about Patience
 This is what Tom looked like at the end of the story
 When Tom got angry or upset, the strangest thing happened to him.  At one time he turned pink as a petunia because he was so happy
 One time Tom became so angry that he turned as red as a tomato

blue because he grumbled and complained because he had to do work around the barnyard
yellow because he was afraid he would be hit by a ball
And each time he was would go to the big oak tree and talk to the wise old owl.  He told him, When you let your temper get out of control, it does strange things to your body.  You must learn how to control your temper.  Next time you feel like you are getting angry or want to pout, stop and say the magic word, seven times.  What magic word, asked Tom?  The magic word is 'Patience'  When you get upset, say it seven times and it will give you time to think and  help you to control your temper.  Good advice for all of us

 Each of the children were given an apple.  They were instructed to put a toothpick in the apple and put a big marshmallow on it, then add toothpicks with raisins, a toothpick for the beak and one for the gobbler.

 Then they proceeded to put the feathers on the turkey.  They used spice gum drops, pretzels, minature marsmallows, and various other things
 Hyrum and Sam attacking it seriously

 Hyrum finishes his
 Joey and Janaye show their turkeys
 And Lily is done, too!!
There was a final story about the Hare and the Turtle
And Miss Jo finished the story
A very good way to end the day!! And always a reminder to pace ourselves when a task is before us and we will still finish.
Another good Preschool day and I think, lots of fun!!  Happy Thanksgiving!!
