As the autumn leaves continue to change, so do the students in my classroom. We've only been in school for 68 days, yet these 'speed racers' have learned so much! With Thanksgiving just a few days away, we've been participating in several turkey related activities.
Yesterday 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 and use our pictures for functional writing. Check out these super gobblers by clicking here!
Thank you so much to all the families who came to visit with us today!
The students really enjoyed sharing pumpkin pie, Thanksgiving cards, and our video with you.
Our class does have much to be thankful for and if you weren't able to
join us this afternoon, you can still check out the video below. I hope each one of you has a safe, relaxing, and
enjoyable break. Happy Thanksgiving!!
