Turkey day at pre-school!

Today, Kabir's class celebrated Thanksgiving. Feast was planned, parents were invited. There was lots of excitement!

I walked into Kabir's classroom and saw him dressed up as a turkey! He had shared with me that he was making a turkey costume in class but to see it in real was another thing. So beautiful and creative and he looked super cute wearing it!

PAC did a great job with the kids activities. Children wrote what they were thankful for, painted picture frames and made their own turkeys; a hammering activity which was so unique and such a big hit!

A parent got a polaroid camera and took pictures of children with their parents, to put in the freshly painted frames! What a great thought. A keepsake for years and years to come!

Children sang the Albuquerque is a turkey song that they had been practicing in the class! They all did such a great job! In the past, Kabir would usually be quiet but this time he was singing! It was such a joy to watch and listen to him sing with his friends!

The lyrics of the song go like this:

Albuquerque is a turkey,
And he's feathered and he's fine.
And he wobbles, and he gobbles,
And he's absolutely mine.

He's the best pet that you can get,
Better than a dog or cat.
Albuquerque, he's my turkey,
And I'm awfully proud of that.

It was a cheerful and a much enjoyable day that ended with a big feast! :)

School events this year are bittersweet for me as I know they are his last with this group. Next year Kabir will go to kindergarten. Kabir loves his pre-school and is thriving in this beautiful environment with great teachers and a wonderful set of friends who love him. So much to be thankful for!
