November we talk about bears, being thankful, and Native Americans. We'll start off with a series by Karma Wilson and Jane Chapman. Some of the titles include Bear Snores On and Bear Wants More. We will then read non-fiction material to find out about bears: what they eat, where they live, what kinds, and what bears hibernate.
In our small group library time, we are watching a Smithsonian video series on Native American storytelling. We'll read Chief Jake Swamp's story, Giving Thanks.
Our bulletin board art is still following our study of shapes. First we made Circle Pumpkin, next Square Bear, and now Triangle Turkey. All these pieces use a variety of art mediums and multiple shapes to learn our shapes!
