We read a book and watched a short video about the Mayflower. Then students brainstormed things they would want to take on the 65 day journey. After that that did a craftivity about what they would take with them if they could only choose 4 items.
Students walked around and did a Thanksgiving Find a Friend activity. They asked questions like “Do you like turkey?” If the friend likes turkey they wrote their name in the box.
To end the day we wrote sentences using Thanksgiving words. Students shared their sentences so we could learn about their Thanksgiving.
- In math, students continued to practice drawing tens and ones.
- In Writing, we learned two more leads for writing. We learned about Sound Effect and Question. We have one more lead to learn about before the students write a lead for their story.
- Students had library today. They brought home their new books with them.
