Celebrating the Thanksgiving Season

Dressed as turkeys, the preschool students at Reinhard celebrated the Thanksgiving holiday with seasonal activities. Under the direction of teachers Alison Burke and Liz Haines, the district’s youngest students entertained their parents as they gobbled upon entering the cafeteria and wobbled and flapped their wings while singing  “I’m a Little Turkey,” “Turkey Trot” and “Five Plump Turkeys.”

The students then joined their parents at tables decorated with handmade Thanksgiving placemats, where they jointly worked on a turkey craft. Ms. Burke read aloud “The Thanksgiving Story Bracelet” while students and parents added a colored bead to a pipe cleaner, corresponding to the clues in the story. Everyone’s favorite activity, however, was the opportunity to taste delicious pumpkin and apple pies.
