Thanksgiving Celebration and Dinner

 Today was our Thanksgiving Dinner. We spent last week painting pillow case dresses and vests and making our headdresses. This morning we watched a video about what Thanksgiving is and why we celebrate it, then read Clifford's Thanksgiving Visit by Norman Bridwell.

Our tribe of gatherers, fire keepers and a fisherman.

The Fire Keepers

 Family came to eat with the kids today for their Thanksgiving feast of turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, green beans and pumpkin cake!

They also spent the week making "Thankful For Turkeys". They had to sound the words out themselves and write what they were thankful for on their feathers.

 They did an awesome job creating their turkeys and writing their words! :)
