Thanksgiving Celebration

The theme for this week was Thanksgiving.  We tried to save some turkeys by giving them a disguise.  We wrote what we are thankful for.  We learned about the Pilgrims and the first Thanksgiving.  We read poems and stories about this holiday.  Our class compared and contrasted life in the past with our life today.  I think we all agreed that we like the comforts we have now.  Our mini-unit would not be complete without making cornbread and churning our own butter in class.  What a great time we had!

Honoring Our Veterans

Our school honored 34 of our local veterans with a special assembly on Friday, November 8th.   Students in the primary grades decorated the gym with posters thanking our veterans for their service and sacrifice. Students in the intermediate grades wrote poems and letters which were distributed to veterans. In preparation for this assembly, our class learned why we celebrate Veterans Day. Thank you to all our brave U.S. Veterans!
