Caring - November's Theme of the Month

November 2011 Theme of the Month

During our Family Activity last week, we updated our theme board with our theme for November: Caring. 

Families were asked to come up with ideas about how to show they care about different things in life, like family, friends, and most importantly, yourself. The kids came up with some great ways to show caring for your family - from doing things for one another, to making sure they are safe, to making sure they are loved. 

Our families then found pictures and phrases to put up on the board to remind us about caring in our every day lives.
