Holiday celebrations at school change from year to year. Thanksgiving seems to be a holiday that most classrooms at the elementary school level participate in one way or another.
In kindergarten, my son’s teacher asked people to send in an item that is special and represents our family. We brain stormed. In the end, my little pilgrim wanted us to send in Matzoh Balls.
In first grade, NHL’s teacher wanted to keep things simple. Everyone brought in things to share in a small afternoon party where they gave thanks.
For second grade at the old school, the second and third grade classes had a large feast together. It was filled with amazing smells and foods.
This year, NHL’s teacher has a huge Thanksgiving meal for the entire family to go to. They are learning about this part of history in Social Studies. I can not wait to see what we have next week.
