The Day's Blessings & Thanksgiving Thursday

"Fill each day with cherished memories and an abundance of gratitude." ~Mama Hen
Little Chick has been a very busy little chick. Some of the fun things they have done recently at school are put on a fantastic Social Studies fair where Little Chick's class focused on France. They sang in French, ate French food, learned French words, painted Van Gogh and Monet masterpieces and celebrated with a French Cafe night where families could come and see all the magnificent things they had learned. They had fun dressing up as little Parisian kids. They then celebrated their 100th day of school by dressing up as a hundred year old person. They brought in 100 pennies and shopped around the classroom store to buy goodies. They ended the day with an ice cream party that each family contributed 100 pieces of various toppings. Finally, Little Chick's took a fantastic field trip to a farm where they learned all about sugaring. Little Chick loves maple syrup and thought it was interesting to learn about how it is made. They got to tap a tree and also taste the finished product. It has been a fun filled time!
