Thank you note

To work on our language development we talked about things we are thankful for. Family, friend , Jesus, toys ect. We decided to make Mr. Ron a thank you card ( Mr. Ron leads worship for us every week)

We colored the front of the card and added stickers
On the inside we painted our hands to look like turkeys 
When it was dry we walked around singing Gobble Gobble Thank You by:Tammy Ziegler

Sung to "skip to my Lou"
Gobble, gobble, gobble we say thank you
Gobble, gobble, gobble we say thank you
Gobble, gobble, gobble we say thank you
Thank you for all you do!

Thank you streamers

The Funshine Curriculm came with this great art idea.

To start I cut out the pieces like this.
This way I was able to keep the pieces together till I was ready to attach them to the streamers. We then let the bumbles color and add the stickers provided. 
I then attached them to the streamers provided the bumbles love their banners.

Please and Thank You

With Thanksgiving just around the corner this was a great theme to introduce to the Bumbles. I held up the Dinner a vocabulary card as we talked about what the picture was. I had some bumbles say waiting family and yummy.
We talked about our favorite foods and I showed them how to say please and thank you in sign language.

Music and movement:

I'm not sure where I got these but I've had them for years. They are maracas shaped like fruits and vegetables. We used these instead of the manners felt board. 

We shook them as we sang this song

Sung to" Did you ever see a lassie"

Oh when I want (an apple). 
( an apple, an apple)
Oh when I want (an apple). 
I always say please.
( an apple, an apple)
Please give me an (an apple). 
Oh when I want (an apple). 
I always say please.

Oh when I get (an apple). 
( an apple, an apple)
Oh when I get (an apple). 
It's thank you I say.
Oh thank you oh thank you
For giving me an (an apple). 
Oh when I get (an apple). 
It's thank you I say..

Fall ideas

We painted their feet brown then added feather a beak and gobbler to make these turkeys.

November books
These are all fabulous hands on books to read to two or three year olds. They hold their attention and are short but interactive.

Vegtable pick up

This was a great way to get the bumbles to familiarize themselves with different fruits and Vegtables. 
Give each child a food card
Have them sit in a circle as you sing this song while driving the truck around
When you song the child food have them load it in the truck. You can use any toy truck I used this wooden truck I got from the FunShine express.

Thankful Child pictures 

What you need:
Cornucopia pattern
Squared of plastic canvas, 

Each child used the plastic square to paint a pattern on the cornucopia.

Once they dry stick child picture in the center then encourage them to stick stickers around their pictures. 

I turned them into placemats by gluing them to a larger piece of paper then writing what the are thankful around it.

Using the matrials provided in the FunShine Curriculm we made turkey
