Today we did a guided drawing to create a turkey. First we sketched shapes and lines with a pencil. Then we went over the pencil with an oil pastel. Finally we used water color to paint our turkeys. Wait until you see these with their proud artists. Unfortunately, when we were cleaning up, some of the kids put their names on their papers, so I had to cover them up with stickers. My apologies, I should have told them not to!
We read a beautiful book called We Are Grateful, by Traci Sorrell, that goes through the year telling about the gifts and challenges of each season. The story is told by a Cherokee with many words from their language, Tsalagi, included.
We enjoyed sharing our gratitude scavenger hunt items. The children were so prepared and proud of their work! Thank-you for your support with this project.
I hope you have a peaceful, happy and safe Thanksgiving!
