Pilgrims and Indians

This week we learned short vowel Oo.  We can read and write so many more words now!

O is for Octopus 

 We began a two week unit on the first Thanksgiving.  Thanksgiving is such a fun holiday, the students have enjoyed learning all about the pilgrims and Indians and the importance of the first Thanksgiving.

 The students made pilgrims and wrote what they were thankful for.

 Everyone enjoyed these fiction books about Thanksgiving. 

 These non-fiction books really helped us learn about the first Thanksgiving.
