Cultivating Minds Without Losing My Own

Join me on my Adventures in Elementary Education

School Wide Thanksgiving Feast and Weekly Objectives 11/18-11/22


This week is perhaps one of my favorite each year here at RM Bacon Elementary School.  On Wednesday, our staff prepares and entire Thanksgiving dinner for every student to enjoy.  I love sitting down with “my kids” and sharing this meal.  We all sit as a class and are served by our student leaders and staff members.  It is one of those times that I am truly humbled by the teamwork, donations, and volunteers that pull off this event each year.  While I am on the topic of Thanksgiving this is just a friendly reminder that your child should be recording something he or she is thankful for each evening in their gratitude journal. This paper is going to be collected on Wednesday, November 27th and counts as a Social Studies Project grade.   If you child has lost his or her paper, there are extras in the classroom.


Weekly learning goals and support videos:
