November 13-17




This week the kindergarteners explored Thanksgiving, everything from the first Thanksgiving to the special food we eat.  We learned about why the Pilgrims left England, their ship the Mayflower, and how some of them died that first year.  Then we explored the different ways the Wampanoag people helped the Pilgrims and the feast they had together to celebrate.  We also compared what life is like today to that of the Pilgrim people.  Then we made a new class book.  We each had to create our own Thanksgiving dinner menu.  Next we read the story ‘Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving.  The children in the story save the turkeys and try to convince people to eat something else.  We decided to do the same thing.  We each wrote a list of things you can eat instead of turkey.  We also created a picture of us with a turkey stuffed underneath our shirt.  On Thursday, we celebrated the 50th day of school with a Back to the Fifties Party.  We counted to fifty, wrote fifty words, and compared household items.  We ended the day with a Sock Hop and Root Beer Floats!
