We learned about the Pilgrims and Native Americans and their first feast together. I used the little gameboard from my Thanksgiving Fun Pack to get in lots of artic drill. With my second grade kiddos who also happen to be struggling in math, we did a little roll-n-cover.
It was interesting to find out about the Thanksgiving feasts my students have in their home. This is Louisiana so it’s not always about turkey. Some of their families have traditions of feasting on deer, shrimp etoufee’, seafood gumbo, fried catfish…even turtle soup!! I also had several Hispanic students tell me all about their feast of homemade Mexican dishes. Yummmm.
-thankful for my youngest son who is so very good to the core-

I love your activities and blogs–will you please post how we can be super organized like you? 🙂
Mahalo nui for your giveaway! Always fun!
Thpeech Teach, Love your name!! How to be super organized? I'm constantly working at it, planning ahead, and occasionally freaking out about it. Basically, plan lesson ahead of time, even plans for weeks in advance. As for organizing my room, I spend who knows how much time doing that all summer in preparation for the school year. Also, I try not to leave work each day until I've put my room back together again. You're most welcome! Nice to meet you!
