Give Thanks

It's Thanksgiving week, everyone!

Many teacher friends are off for the entire week. Our school, however, had school today and will have school tomorrow. WOMP.

It's been fine though- today, we wrote using our word wall words, watched Charlie Brown's Thanksgiving, created Pilgrim faces with paper plates saying what we were thankful for in a word bubble, worked in centers, created a Thanksgiving recipe book, and watched a video about how the first real Thanksgiving happened. Oh! And counted by 2's and 5's. Lots of random things.

Tomorrow, K-4th grade will read "Stone Soup" and create a community pot of stone soup. At lunch, we will have our Thanksgiving feast (basically an "assigned" pot luck meal for the kids). I'm excited: my boys are dressing up as Native Americans and my girls are dressing up as Pilgrims. They're going to be ADORABLEEE. And then we will be watching "Pocahontas" in the afternoon :)

We are so excited to have FIVE DAYS OFF TOGETHER. Whaaattt! We are excited to reunite with family and friends, and have fun eating LOTS of food :)

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Count your blessings, name them one by one.
Count your blessings, see what God has done.
