Video Conference

Tuesday afternoon we had the opportunity to meet a 2nd grade class from Startzville Elem. in Texas! We shared our disguised turkeys and a few of our fantasy stories. We also had a chance to ask them some questions about their community. Believe it or not it’s in the 80’s in Texas right now! I am very jealous.

2nd Grade Feast

Today we had our second grade feast. Everyone brought in a vegetable to put in our turkey soup! It was delicious!!!! We also had stuffing, mashed potatoes, corn bread, pumpkin muffins and last but not least pumpkin pie!!!

Thank you to all the families that donated food to make our feast possible!!! And a big thank you to the mom’s and grandma’s that helped serve us!!

Classroom Helpers

Every Wednesday morning my mom “grandma” or Mrs. Barker comes in to help the children with projects. Today the children made fact family turkeys to hang in the hall. They love  going out in the hall and working with her!!

Classroom Store

A big thank you to Mrs. Sant for coming in and running the school store. The children were very excited to spend their Eagle Bucks!! One of the favorite purchases today was buying gum and being able to chew it in the afternoon.

Virtual Field Trip

Tomorrow we will be watching  a thirty minute online field trip to meet a Pilgrim and a Wampanoag—straight from Plimoth Plantation.

The children are very excited to see how life was in 1621. and learn about the trials and triumphs of pilgrim life.
