The curriculum for our two days of school this week is focusing on a Thanksgiving theme. During math, the kids had a great time today generating a menu for Thanksgiving. They only had $30 dollars to spend and were going through the weekly ads to make their list. They estimated and they used a calculator to determine the actual cost.
We will be working on the Diary of a Turkey tomorrow during writing. We took some time today to finish publishing our personal essays, as well as, an essay to save the turkey. In reading we are continuing to read series books and focus on characters. We did take a break to read about our national bird and how Ben Franklin thought that it should have been a turkey.
