Gobble, Gobble!

As the autumn leaves continue to change, so do the students in my classroom. We've only been in school for 63 days, yet these 'superheroes in training' have learned so much! With Thanksgiving just a few days away, we've been participating in several turkey related activities.
Today was no exception as the students were read to by a real author. His name is Chris Francis and he lives in Canada. Through video, the students listened as Chris read us one of his books titled, Mr. Pancake Turkey. It was a great book and inspirational to my class since we just wrapped up Narrative Writing where we learned all about the elements of a good story. It was so nice of Chris to take the time to share the story with our class! You can check out more of Chris' work at
We also decided to try a bit of turkey drawing ourselves. Check out these super gobblers!
