The last two weeks we spent time learning about the Thanksgiving holiday, but we also spent time sharing why we are thankful. We have a lot of reasons to be thankful! On Wednesday, the students wrote down one of the things they are thankful for. Here are the pictures from what they shared.
I am also attaching the photos from our feast. We had a wonderful time with all of our 1st grade friends. A special thank you to all the families who donated items to the feast and who volunteered their time. Everyone had fun!

I’m pretty sure I enjoyed 50’s day as much as the children. We learned a lot and had a great time doing it. Our goal was to focus on the number 50. We’ve been really working on number sense this year and making sure the students understand how the numbers work together. This is such an important skill that will strengthen their future math learning. The bonus with this day is we were able to expose the children to some of the things that are also associated with the 1950’s decade.
We started by talking about the 1950’s and comparing what life may have been like for a 1st grader back then. Throughout the day we watched quick movie clips from great shows like I Love Lucy, we read books that were published in the 1950’s and for our brain breaks we used music/dancing from the decade. One of our brain breaks was a sock hop! There is also a great slide show we watched with 50 things about the 50’s. I skipped over the ones that were not necessary to go over at this age level, but the link had some good info. The children also enjoyed a bubble gum blowing contest with Dubble Bubble gum. Can you believe 14 students were able to blow a bubble?! I was impressed. I am adding some of the things we watched, danced to, and some pics from the day down below.
