Thanksgiving Festivities

Autumn means lots of fun activities and holidays like Halloween and Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is a very important holiday for Americans that happens on the fourth Thursday in November every year. This year I shared a presentation about why and how we celebrate Thanksgiving with the sixth grade class.

After the presentation we saw this funny video of a Thanksgiving Song. Have a listen!

Later, with the second grade classes, we painted turkeys. Gobble, gobble!!

With the 1st graders we made little Native American girls to celebrate the influence they had on the first Thanksgiving.

One more fun video--this is one of my favorite movies about Thanksgiving. Its a really funny cartoon called Charlie Brown. Enjoy!

U.K penfriends!

1st A-B and 2nd A-B students from CEIP San José de Calasanz in Rota have started a "pen pal project" with students from an English school in London (Hobbayne Primary School). The main objectives are to practice reading and writing skills as well as to make new friends. All students agree that it's a great opportunity to learn about the target language and the culture.
