Thanksgiving Party

We started off the day with a "Turkey Hunt" at school, and then rode on the bus to Mrs. Hammett's house for our Thanksgiving party.

We played a fun game called "Turkey, Turkey, Who's Got the Turkey?" Everyone had to sit in a circle and pass around some leaves and a turkey. The person in the middle had to guess who had the turkey!


Miss Follett read about the First Thanksgiving, and then we made Thanksgiving story bracelets. {Each bead stands for a different part of the Thanksgiving story.}

Getting ready to add the beads to our Thanksgiving story bracelets.

Roadside America & Alayna's House

Last Wednesday we went to Roadside America Miniature Village. We got to see miniature trains, cars, trolleys, little towns, forests, mountains, airplanes and much more! The best part is seeing the night time program where the "sun" goes down and all the lights in the villages come on. "God Bless America" is played during that time. Also as is tradition, we had to get a picture with "Ma and Pa" who are nearby. After we were done there, we went to my sister's house for lunch and some play time with her cats and new puppy, Harvey. It was a fun-filled day!
