Pilgrim Boy, Pilgrim Boy

Remember my Orange Pumpkin, Orange Pumpkin book...

Here's my Pilgrim Boy, Pilgrim Boy book for Thanksgiving.

Click on the picture above to grab your own copy. ENJOY!

P.S.  Just one more day to enter my really BIG Giveaway!!  Don't miss out!

What Are We Reading Wednesday

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!

If You Want to Know What Heaven Looks Like...

Here it is from the eyes of a 6 year old!

Today we read

We, meaning I, noted that nowhere in the book was it mentioned that anyone was thankful for video games or toys.

We charted what we are thankful for.

Then I told them that I had a naked turkey on the wall outside our room that was missing something.  After naming all kinds of clothing that the turkey could wear, someone finally said feathers. YAY!

So we made feathers for our turkey.  On it we wrote something that we were thankful for and illustrated.

Take a look at our turkey...

Here are some of our other feathers.

Yes, we recently learned about spiders and how they were helpful.

Here's a turkey for you!  We are composing and decomposing numbers to 10.
