21st January 15
The 27th of November, Laude Pre-School Children have celebrated Thanksgiving Day.
Thanksgiving is an American National Holiday where people give thanks for the blessings of the harvest and food of the preceding year. Nowadays, everybody gives thanks not only for food but also for family, friends, health etc. Its roots are dated from 1620 when the Pilgrims who came from England, arrived in North America.
First, we watched videos of Thanksgiving to understand what it is and what we are celebrating. Second, we made Pilgrims and Indians hats to take home. Third, we made Turkey and Mayflower cards with our families to say ‘I´m thankful for…. ‘ We put them up on the Christmas tree in our hall to share with everyone. We said out loud: Happy Thanksgiving Day! Finally we exchanged presents and we made napkin rings for other classes.
In conclusion, we caught the spirit of Thanksgiving and we had a great time!
We look forward to celebrating it again next year.
