Whew, we have made it! Only two more days and these kiddos are on break. I am so excited for this short week, we are going to have so much fun! No spelling words, high frequency words, math tests, reading test… the list goes on and on.
The students will travel to each first grade teacher this week to learn more about the Pilgrims and Native Americans who inspired this yummy holiday You received a note home today (hopefully it made it there safe and sound) about a Thanksgiving feast! Please send a snack to share with the first grade by Tuesday. On Thursday afternoon we will enjoy our delicious feast of snacks and watch Charlie Brown Thanksgiving.
*I have scheduled a reminder for Sunday afternoon to bring a snack for the feast via Remind101, if you haven’t signed up you still can. All it does is allows me to send the class text messages… I cannot send them to individuals and your phone number does not show up to me or any other parent. To sign up text @mrsjankor to (303) 647-4863… yes, there is suppose to be no d on the end of jankord.
Your child will also be bringing a Thanksgiving graphic organizer over break. If you take the time to fill this out over the holiday it will greatly benefit them as they write Thanksgiving Narratives when we get back the following week.
*Remember Grandparents day will be Nov. 29th, please return the lunch order form with money as soon as you can.
Here is the Thanksgiving poem that inspired our paper chains that came home Thursday.
