Thanksgiving at CCP is about celebrating with family, feasting, and giving thanks. We will use the family picture pages of every child that are on walls of the preschool to come to know about the grandmas, grandpas, aunts, and uncles with whom they will be celebrating the holidays. Over the next few days, parents and other family will join us in preparation of stuffing, carrots, yams, and pumpkin ice cream.
On Wednesday, we will gather together to share the feast at long decorated tables. We will also read a wonderful book, Thanks for Thanksgiving by Julie Markes, illustrated by Doris Barrette. It gently goes through a Thanksgiving day with a family, noticing all of the simple but important things to be thankful for. As a group, we will recall some of the things that matter most to us. This is one of my favorite times of year. Tweet
