Old School Monday--Nov. 23rd!

Hello Vintage Moms!

Thanks to everyone who came out for our little October costume party--which I now realize I never posted news about here on the site. Whoops!

Our November Old School Monday is upon us, and do we have fun planned! We are going to:
--practice memorizing our United States via song

--take a quiz on symbols of America

--play some get-em-movin' game in the gym

--circle time.
*Please prepare your child to share something about either 1) the history of Thanksgiving, and/or 2) your own family's Thanksgiving traditions. They are welcome to bring an object to show that illustrates what they want to share about.

--take a nature walk looking at trees and collecting leaves

--do a fantastic Fall craft. Check it out here.
For this craft, please bring: cardboard, sharp scissors or knife (or you can cut your cardboard at home), craft glue, a paper bag (for leaf collecting), pretty ribbon (am I forgetting anything?)

Do you have another fun idea for us to do together? Bring it!

Do you have a homeschool project you are working on or have completed that you are really proud of? Please bring it to share!

We will begin ON TIME this week, so please come, and don't worry if you are running late, but we want to make the most of our time together, so we will start our activities right away.

Monday, in the Vintage Faith gym/classroom from 10-1. Bring lunch for your kids, if you want. If you are already in the spirit of Thanksgiving, you are of course welcome to bring something to share! ; )

So please come! Please invite your homeschool/preschool friends!

*your child's participation is optional, as always--but let's encourage them to stretch their comfort zones and minds!
