Two weeks before Thanksgiving, I send home a letter telling families about our Kinder-giving Feast and inviting them to share a family favorite dish. I also ask them to share the recipe for our Class Cookbook for the housekeeping center (and for me). On the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, our families gather for a feast of family favorites. Children perform a song and poem. This event gives families an opportunity to see all the projects we've been working on this month.
