Press release from: Milton Hall Montessori
Last Thursday 26th November all the children at Milton Hall enjoyed celebrating Thanksgiving with many activities.
A special circle time followed by story time, and celebrating with a small feast of food and beverage!
People all over the United States celebrate this day in many different ways.
Children enjoyed making their thanksgiving pilgrim black hat card and a small snack to share with their family.
Most families follow traditions begun on the first Thanksgiving, but many have their own traditions that they follow each year.
Traditional foods are a large part of Thanksgiving celebrations. Many families include the entire family in the food preparation. Traditional foods include turkey, stuffing, gravy, sweet potatoes, cornbread, mashed potatoes, and cranberry sauce. Many people serve pie for dessert at the end of the meal. Popular pie flavors are pumpkin, pecan, sweet potato, and apple.
Some families choose to serve vegetarian Thanksgiving dinners instead of a stuffed turkey. They might eat vegetarian turkey, which can be made out of tofu. Others eat squash, salads, or other fruit and vegetable dishes.
Sutindar Lal said "Thanksgiving is a perfect time to help your child to learn about gratitude, love and compassion.
This Thanksgiving we are thankful for our brilliant children, dedicated teachers and committed families It’s with your help and continued support, that we’ve have been able to offer Montessori education and keep our community safe during these unprecedented times."
