Thanksgiving

Add caption
We did a lot of things the week before Turkey Day that I did not post. So I'm playing catch up! We did crossword puzzles, we played Bingo, we read lots of books on the Mayflower, Pilgrims and Indians. And we wrote all about it.
We made Squanto and Samoset and "became" an Indian boy or girl and wrote about their lives
during the time of the Mayflower and the First Thanksgiving...
When you open the Indian' "buffalo skin coat" here is what one student wrote...

LINK HERE  for a cute Turkey Crossword Puzzle.
Another crossword puzzle is HERE at Sunday School Kids.


May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey plump,
May your potatoes and gravy
Have nary a lump.
May your yams be delicious
And your pies take the prize,
And may your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off your thighs!
~Author Unknown
We never had time to do these cute pilgrims and Indians...we made some others...instead... 

Here at Phillyfun4kids  is a cute craft for kids using paper towel and toilet paper rolls.  A utube for directions on the roll "village people" is
We also made these cute turkeys out of butcher paper loops...


And we wrote about what we are Thankful For....lots of kids were thankful for Turkey Dinners! 


SONGS 
Tune: Did You Ever See a Lassie
I'm glad I'm not a turkey, a turkey, a turkey
I'm glad I'm not a turkey on Thanksgiving Day.
They'll cook you and baste you
And then they'll all taste you!
I'm glad I'm not a turkey on Thanksgiving Day!

Darling turkeys (in disguise) made by some of my 3rd grade former students.....

Can you tell these are Pirate turkeys?  So CUTE! They are in disguise so they won't be EATEN! 


Albuquerque, he's my turkey- Anonymous
(Sung to the tune of 'Clementine')


Albuquerque he's my turkey
Oh he's feathered and he's fine
He wobbles and he gobbles
And I'm awfully glad he's mine.
He's the best pet
You could ever get.

Better than a dog or cat.
Albuquerque he's my turkey
And I'm awfully glad of that.
Albuquerque he's my turkey
He's so cozy in his bed
Because for Thanksgiving dinner
We had scrambled eggs instead.




HERE at Family Fun.  is the link to make this cute pilgrim.  It is made with toilet paper rolls too.

We had fun playing Thanksgiving Bingo with our class after we had written down things we were Thankful for.  I hope everyone had a fun time on their family's Turkey Day.  Soon I'll some journal entries we did Today called our Thanksgiving Weekend News. In the meantime, we did a weekly graph asking this question; What is your VERY FAVORITE Thanksgiving Food.  Guess which one was the winner?
I'll post the pictures of our graph and the answer tomorrow.


HERE is a cute BINGO  game from Family Fun that is FREE and downloadable.
