We had school on Monday Nov 22 but I have decided to take the rest of the week off. YAY!!!
We have been working hard to learn more about the 1st Thanksgiving by doing a lap book from Hands of a child. The kids had fun and we learned a lot. The lap book included a few recipes (they think) were made for the first Thanksgiving so we are going to include them in our Thanksgiving this year.
This is the cover of the Lap book.
We have also been doing a I'm thankful Turkey every day. Each day the children write down something they are thankful for on the feathers of the turkey.
For a writing assignment each child worked on a Acrostic Poem using the word THANKSGIVING. Princess did her Independently while Little man needed a bit of help.
After school yesterday the kids helped with the baking and so far we have made banana bread, sugar cookies and candy corn! I don't have pictures of this as I was up to my elbows with flour:).
Today the kids decorated the sugar cookies.
Made chocolate chip cookies
Made Oatmeal raisin cookies
and helped make pumpkin bread.
Tomorrow is pumpkin pie and then I think we will be all done with the baking. Boy does our house smell good!!! I plan on freezing a portion of all the cookies so we will have some for Christmas and New year.
