4th Graders Give Thanks and Bless Others at a "Reverse" Thanksgiving Day Party

main image

Our fourth-grade students spent their Thanksgiving class parties focused on being thankful and on blessing others. They began by sharing how the holiday helped them remember all of the things they are thankful for. In Mrs. Sorenson's class, students participated in a "reverse" Thanksgiving, where they made cards for other people, blessing them with pictures, stickers, and Bible verses. Elle Hinson shared, "I think it's fun to give back to other people... it reminds me how thankful I am for my family."

In Ms. Hyman's class, students enjoyed snacks, played games, and made lists of things they are thankful for. Banks Jenkins said, "I am most thankful for God, my family, my friends, and my dog." After thankful lists were finished, the games began. One game, "suck it up", involved moving M&Ms with a straw. This game helped students remember how the Pilgrims had to "suck it up" during their first hard winter.

All in all, the love and thankfulness of the season was felt throughout the halls of PCA and will continue to shine throughout the upcoming Christmas season.

Preschool Press: Celebrating Thanksgiving!

main image

Over the past few weeks, our preschoolers have learned about the Mayflower, the first Thanksgiving, and experienced many of the foods the pilgrims may have eaten. Some classes even experienced what vegetables look and feel like before they are cooked. Teachers enjoyed teaching children how to snap a bean and shuck corn. Lots of fun was had by all! Each class has enjoyed time with their friends to celebrate Thanksgiving. We are thankful for our parents who took the time to volunteer to help make this special!
