Just before Thanksgiving, our little pilgrims and Indians in Mrs. Sims's first grade class visited Woodcrest for a special day to give thanks for our friends!
The students were greeted with waves and smiles from their Woodcrest friends who were eager for them to arrive.
Together, the students and their Woodcrest friends read a short story, Five Little Turkeys (A Thanksgiving Story with a Twist!). The students shared the importance of the Thanksgiving holiday with their friends and they received 3 turkey feathers for the pair to write down what they were thankful for so they can decorate Tom the Turkey. The partners talked about what they were thankful for together and shared their giving of thanks aloud for everyone to enjoy.
Before they exchanged hugs and high fives until next time, the students sang a song for their friends - 'Five Fat Turkeys Are We!'
We have so much to be thankful for - especially our friends at Woodcrest!
