Harvest Celebration

In honor of Thanksgiving, we made pine cone turkeys
and then had to go on a turkey hunt when they managed to wander away.
Perfect books for harvest time, we enjoy every year, The Enormous Potato by Aubrey Davis and
Dusan Petricic.
and The Enormous Carrot by Vladimir Vagin.
We dramatized the story of "Stone Soup" while we listened to this tale about sharing and friendship- a perfect tale for Thanksgiving. This gave us practice for making our own "stone soup".

Our goal was "stone soup" or a better name would perhaps be "friendship soup". We all worked together to cut up all kinds of vegetables and then put them in a pot for some yummy soup. 
by Harry and Wende Devlin
and used the recipe in the book to make cranberry muffins using the secret ingredient (you'll have to read it to find out what it is:). We had it with our "friendship soup" for lunch.
We sang a song about turkeys to the tune
“Have You Ever Seen a Lassie?”:
Gobble, gobble, gobble, gobble
Fat turkeys, fat turkeys.
Gobble, gobble, gobble, gobble
Fat turkeys are we.
We walk very proudly
And gobble so loudly
Gobble, gobble, gobble, gobble
Fat turkeys are we!

Happy Thanksgiving!
