THANK YOU to everyone who donated to our WCDS 29 Hours of Giving! We were thankful for all of the great learning this week! Our Kids in the Kitchen was led by Mrs. Rutherford, and she introduced many of our friends to homemade salsa! After that fun experience, we took to the outdoors and had a scavenger hunt of all things fall! They had a blast searching for the items and once they finished, they enjoyed a little sunshine on our beautiful playground.

This week, Miss Madison read “Turkey Trouble” to our students and challenged them with a project. In the story, the turkey disguises himself as different animals to avoid ending up on the dinner table for Thanksgiving. Students came up with great ideas to disguise their own turkeys and wrote about them by giving them a name and describing what they used to create them.

We wrapped up our habitat deep dive! Each student selected their favorite habitat, illustrated it and then wrote a few sentences about their picture. We plan on sending the pages away to create a wonderful class book. Look for details on Monday about how you can purchase your own personal book!

We ended the week with a STEM challenge. The class read “The Great Turkey Race” and were challenged to make their own maze obstacle course. They used a tray, 10 straws, and a marble. Students then raced their marbles (aka turkeys) through to the finish line.

We are so incredibly THANKFUL we get to teach such an amazing group of kiddos. We are also so grateful for your support and partnership. We hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving and break.
