I have taught grades 1, 2, 3, 4 and now some 5 over the past 25 years. Although First Grade which is where my heart lives, I am continuing my adventure with 5th graders who need some extra help, as well as part-time Literacy Coach this year. Wish me luck! I am so glad you stopped by!
who entered my BIG GIVEAWAY! I was thrilled as read all of your comments! We all have many, many things to be thankful for each and every day!!
The winners are...
CONGRATS to Kaydee and Karen! I will be emailing away this weekend!!
I'm sorry we all can't win but for everyone who left me their email in their comments, I will be sending you something brand new for the holiday season next week. You will have it even before it's in my store. Lucky YOU!!
Today we are reading about the voyage of the Pilgrims and the first Thanksgiving. We read several books but the one I read today was Friendship's First Thanksgiving by William Accorsi. It may be out of print but I have been reading it for more than a couple of years.
The activity I did to go with this book can go with any books that tell the story of the First Thanksgiving.
I found several of these with different versions on the internet last year and changed them a little and created my own version for my students.
Today we made these beaded bracelets to retell the story of the First Thanksgiving. They LOVE them!
Click the picture below to see how I taught my students to retell the story. ENJOY!
