Fayston students have so much to be thankful for! We celebrated the true meaning of THANKSgiving by working in small groups to paint pictures of the things we are thankful for.
We are thankful for our families.
We are thankful for living in a beautiful place!
We are thankful for our warm homes.

Kindergarten artists read "I'm the Best," by Lucy Cousins. This book has beautiful watercolor paintings. Kindergartners recognized that when Dog said "I'm the best," it hurt his friends feelings. We talked about the things that we are each good at and then painted watercolor pictures in the styles of Cousins' illustrations.
Here are Kindergarten artists painting "I'm good at..." pictures.
