We are in the holiday spirit this week (let’s be honest…this MONTH) and we are talking all about the different holiday characters that we see around this time of year. This is a special book because it features a one-of-a-kind background created by our art teacher, Judy, and her students. It also features our students on each page dressed up as popular holiday characters, from Frosty the Snowman to Suzy Snowflake. Take a look at the book to get into the holiday spirit with us!

Although it’s a week after Thanksgiving, we are still in the Thanksgiving mood! We are talking all about the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade. There are all sorts of balloons that can be seen during the parade. Our book covers a few of them, like Ronald McDonald, Trolls, and Hello Kitty. We have a couple of our students attending the parade who are featured on the front and the back. See what other balloons were at the parade!

We are celebrating National Hiking Day (November 17) by talking about some of the national parks that we have here in the United States. We journeyed all across the nation, from the Everglades in Florida to the Smoky Mountains in Colorado to Volcanoes National Park in Hawaii. There are so many beautiful places to go for a hike! We have a couple of our students “taking a hike” on the front cover and on the “the end” pages of the book. A big THANK YOU to Jeannie for providing us with the Sequoia National Park pictures and to Leisa for the Grand Canyon picture. We hope you enjoy!

This week, we are using the Unique theme to talk about Colonial America. Times were much different back then! Our book talks about some different jobs they had, food they ate, and games they played. We have a few of our students dressed up in some of the clothing that people during that time period would wear. Look and see how much has changed!

We’re celebrating Day of the Dead this week in our groups. We learned a lot about this Mexican holiday! We learned that it is a time to celebrate and remember those loved ones who have died. We also read about some of the things that are put out on the altars that are created for the loved ones. Two of our own students got into the spirit of Day of the Dead by dressing up in costumes that might be seen during the Day of the Dead. Read our book to find out about it!

We have a pretty spooky book this week for our monsters in movies theme! We’ve got monsters from Pirates of the Caribbean, from Monsters, Inc., and from Scooby Doo, plus a few more. You’ve got to check out the book to see which other ones are featured. We have our awesome students in this book and they are dressed as some of these scary, sometimes silly, monsters. Check it out!

Our school recently had the annual fall festival, so we decided to keep the celebration going by dedicating our theme to fall festivals. Our book contains pictures from the festival. There were lots of fun activities like face painting, hay rides, fun games, and yummy food. Take a look at the fun we had!
