November 22nd, 2006
Today we focused on our Thanksgiving blessings. We listened to the Shaker song, Simple Gifts, and learned a dance to the song. We then wrote down all of the things we are thankful for (our Thanksgiving blessings). Some students filled a page front and back. I asked students to share some of these blessings at their Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday.
After listing our blessings, students created a wreath to display some of their blessings.
Art and Spanish rounded out the day.
Hope your family has a happy Thanksgiving holiday!
