We will also be doing a journal entry after we learn about the traditions of Thanksgiving. As part of the Grade 2 curriculum, we get to learn about all the different celebrations, so we will be doing an activity/journal entry for each of them this year.
Here's how our pumpkin pies turned out!! The orange "pie" spins, showing each of the different things the students are thankful for!
Before we started, we did a brainstorm as a class of all the things we have in our lives to be thankful for. They shared first with their elbow partners, and then we shared as a class (always looking for time to practice our oral French!).
Then when they were done, they shared their pies with their classmates.
