Thankful for Traditions!

Thanksgiving has come and gone!  We still had school on Monday and Tuesday as well as a half day on Wednesday.  Last Friday, it snowed and then rained on top of about 5 inches of the white stuff so we had a two hour delay, and winter is still a month away!  In the meantime, I'm delighted to link up with The Blended Blog for Friday Features and

Thankful Turkey Feathers ~ One Tradition

Every year I love adding my students' thankful feathers to the turkey in the hall.  It's a quick and easy activity that gives the kids a chance to think about all the good things in their lives:

Turkey Trot ~ A New Tradition

Our PTO started a new fund-raising tradition this year by having the kids walk laps around the track while raising money.  One of my student's parents lent her turkey to the cause:

We are thankful for the Wampanoags!

In Social Studies, we are learning about the First People ~ the Wampanoags.  As a project, we make this very fun Wampanoag home site:

  1. It's SO great that Andrew helped to rescue the sea turtle. I had no idea that strandings on the Cape were common until I folowed the link you shared. Does Andrew volunteer often? I love the Wampanoag homesites. I teach about Connecticut tribes, but I usually teach about the Wampanoag some as well, since they also lived in wetus (wigwams). Thanks for sharing the links to the patterns.
    Laughter and Consistency
