As we reflect today on all the wonderful blessings we have in our lives we give thanks to God for every single one of them. I am so very thankful for each and every one of you and your beautiful children and I thank God for bring you into my life.
The things that class 4 said they were thankful for. They brought tears to our eyes. We asked each child; Why are you thankful for? Penelope, Carter and Charles, “I am thankful for my mommy.” Caden, “I am thankful for my sister, mommy and daddy.” Eden,”I am thankful for my daddy bring me to school.” Evelyn,“ I am thankful for my teacher.” Isaiah,“I am thankful for my sister in mommy’s tummy.” JulietteI am thankful for my family.” Lucas, “I am thankful for soup.” Rune, “I am thankful for the trees.” Even at this age they are capturing what a blessing it is to have Jesus in their life.
Day 2 of Stone Soup and we were just as excited. We got to cut celery and carrots and potatoes. Which was a little tough but still so much fun!
While we were waiting for our soup to cook we played on the patio and in our classroom. We asked over and over if it was time for soup yet.
We loved our Stone Soup days! We drank juice and had so many strawberries.
Thank you Room 3 Families for helping to make our Stone Soup so special! We couldn’t have done it without you!
We wish you all a happy and safe Thanksgiving holiday!
Our Stone Soup Days were a wonderful way to celebrate the Thanksgiving season. We began our week by reading different versions of Stone Soup and discussing the concept of collaboration and sharing. On Thursday and Friday the children cut different vegetables to add to a big pot of broth, we added some seasoning and pasta to finish our masterpiece. Next, came our celebration feast with our delicious soup, rolls, apple cider, strawberries and our festive decor. Our room 2 family sat together in delight enjoying our soup and each other’s company. To top off the festivities we had a special guest reader today, who we lovingly refer to as papa. He read Bug Soup to the children over a zoom link so the children were able to interact with him. This last week has reminded us of the special blessings God has granted us and we are thankful for our room 2 family.
This month has been so much fun and busy. We’ve created many different artwork in art studio and under the double trees that’s found in the play yard. From fall sculptures, gourd rolling paintings to nature collages, tie dye magnet turkeys and cinnamon art. Much was explored and discovered…. Happy Thanksgiving to all our wonderful students and families. -Ms. Monica, Preschool Art Teacher
Stone Soup has been so much fun! Room 3 was so excited to help Ms. Sheri cook our soup. We got to chop the vegetables that went into our soup!
We went in groups to cut our vegetables and we couldn’t wait to help out!
This week we have been reading Stone Soup books and the overarching theme is sharing. We are thankful that our families have been so generous!
Thank you for the beautiful tablecloths and napkins. Thank you for the delicious strawberries, bread and juice. We loved it all. We couldn’t have done it without you!
Thank you parents for supporting us in this long time tradition at Pasadena Christian Preschool. There are many versions to stone soup and the shortest story for class 4 is “Fox Tail soup,” Thank you for bringing all the vegetables and sides. The kids had fun chopping and tasting them. The soup was delicious and all the kids seemed to enjoy the soup. Enjoy your Thanksgiving week, stay safe and may God bless you and your family.
