We read the story “Thanksgiving Day” and learned about the very first Thanksgiving. Then we cut and glued pictures that illustrated the first thanksgiving in the correct sequence. For our art and writing we made TLC art pilgrims and wrote about what we were thankful for.

We are now learning about communities in our K-1 All-Star Class and this week we started with learning about communities that we live in. We read several stories about City vs. Country including the book, “Country Kid, City Kid”.
We then watched a Sesame Street video about a city kid going to visit his friend in the country. We learned even more about the differences about the city and the country.
We took the details we learned in the story about both the city and the country and we put them into a venn diagram. Then we used the data we put in the venn diagram to decide whether we would prefer living in the country or the city. For our writing we made TLC art and wrote a persuasive piece on why we prefer either the city or the country.
For centers students explored different types of communities in the city or country.
