At group time today, we introduced “Mat Man” to the children. We built him using teamwork, and sang his catchy song. Mat Man is from the Handwriting Without Tears program. He teaches the children what the body parts are, and where to put them when drawing a picture of a person. The children may choose to do this activity during our work time.
We acted out the story of the first thanksgiving today. It starts with one person playing the mean king (James) who unfairly collects money from everyone. The pilgrims leave England and sail on a rocking boat for 66 days. They land, and meet the Native American Indians. Squanto helps them plant corn and hunt. They share a big feast after their first harvest.
Have your preschooler retell the story to you!
