We are finally on THANKSGIVING BREAK!
Before I go into relaxation mode, I wanted to post a few things that we did this short week.
I introduced my kids to the idea of a "final draft." Last week we wrote a "rough draft" about what we are thankful for. Then, we looked at our"rough draft" to check for periods and capitalization and rewrote our writing onto this super fancy paper. Then they got to make a little turkey topper.
" I am thankful for a car. I am thankful for a bear. I am thankful for lunch boxes. I am thankful for vampires. I am thankful for Miss Taylor."
Vampires were a popular thing to be thankful for in my classroom, hmmm? haha
They looked so cute in the hall! I am so proud of their writing!
We also made turkey cookies. I just sort of made up this cookie idea from a mix of different Pinterest ideas...
My kids had fun assembling them and licking their fingers.
We also made macaroni necklaces, hand print cards and Indian headbands. Grrr I didn't take any pictures...
I am already plotting my classroom Christmas decorations!!! : )
HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO EVERYONE!
Enjoy your much deserved break!
