Happy Thanksgiving!

Before we began all the Thanksgiving Day activities in kindergarten, I just wanted to see how much the children really knew about the first Thanksgiving.  I asked them the question “who was at the first Thanksgiving?”  It was interesting to see who actually attended that feast!  Here are their responses:

Eva – Aunt Jessie

Chloe – YaYa and Papa

Gianna – Abraham Lincoln

Ryan B. – Donald Trump

Austin – Johnny Appleseed

Ryan D. – Joseph

Harper – my dad

Ella – mom and dad

Jack – Adam and Eve

Annie – the angels

Alice – Jesus

Rusty – Abraham in the Bible

Maddox – grandma and grandpa

Jett – my mom

Lucy – my cousin Hunter

Madelyn – granny and grandpa

Peyton – the Lord

Hailey – George Washington

Noah – Robert Wadlow

Benjamin – my great, great, great, great grandma named Memaw


Since that time, we have had a few more lessons about the first Thanksgiving.  I feel like we have a better understanding of the holiday now!


To help get ready for the feast at school, our class made the butter.  The moms actually used our butter to put in the mashed potatoes.  It took a whole lot of shaking, but we had a lot of butter when we finished!



On Wednesday our entire school came together for a Thanksgiving feast.  The boys and girls were super excited to eat with their reading buddies that day!  Everyone really enjoyed being there!

On October 31st we had our school parade and Halloween party in the class room.  The boys and girls had a great time getting dressed and walking in the parade.  When we were finished parading, we came back to the classroom for some treats and pumpkin decorating.  It was a fun time for all!  I would like to thank all the great parents who donated things for the party.  I know the boys and girls had a great time!

In the month of October, we have been working hard on the skill of Following Directions.  This month, I would like to recognize Annie as our DWP Star.  Good job Annie!
