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!
