Thursday was Mayflower day. I read the children a rebus story of the first Thanksgiving, and then we make a Mayflower. I always write the word "Mayflower" on the children's ships after they cut them out, and they tell me, "That's not how you write my name."
Here is a cutting activity I let most of them do on their own. They each get a square with the pattern on it, and then I let them cut on the lines. I must say I am so amazed at these children's cutting skills. I have to give a big thanks to Mom and Dad for allowing these little ones to h ave scissors.
We have been doing a lot of activities that stay at school lately, so they were very excited to take these home and show Mom and Dad. They did a wonderful job.
