Students at Starrett Early Learning Center (ELC) learned all about Thanksgiving last month when they hosted their annual turkey day party. ELC staff used colorful children’s books and songs to help the group of three, four and five year-olds understand the concept behind Thanksgiving, which is to be grateful and to help others. Whether it was through reading stories about the relationship between the pilgrims or drawing turkeys, the preschoolers were instructed on the definition of gratitude, the propriety of manners, and the importance of volunteerism. After singing and reciting poems about Thanksgiving, the children enjoyed a delicious turkey meal with stuffing, veggies and cranberry sauce.
