This week is going to be busy in my classroom. We just have this week to finish out November.
I’m not complaining.
I am very happy to have all of next week off.
Since our Friday is going to be short, our Thanksgiving celebration is going to be as well. We are going to do a little pumpkin pie tasting.
In previous years, I’ve done a full on pizza party. We made headdresses and pilgrim hats and put all of the desks together in one big “family feast” table. It was fun and a lot of work – especially on the years when there were very few volunteers.
Then we started going on a field trip each November, and I felt horrible about asking parents to donate to the cost of the field trip AND a party in one month… so I ended the party.
Last year I read the class the Thanksgiving Junie B. Jones story.
