Remember how I said I was excited to put up Thanksgiving decorations in my classroom? Well… I may or may not have overdone it a bit. Regardless of that fact, my students LOVED doing all of the fun activities we did last week.
The next day I brought it back to the 21st century and used one of my friend’s crafts. Susan over at TGIF (Thank God It’s First Grade) made the most adorable turkeys. My kids were in craft heaven with this one. Seriously, they talked about it at recess that’s how much they liked it.
Later on in the week we created a packing list for the Mayflower and wrote why we would have or would not have wanted to go on it. My whole class said they would take the 60 + days at sea to escape from King James and to be able to pray to God. It really was endearing to hear their thoughts on the voyage.
And last but not least, we finished the week with our weekly science experiment. This week was a cooking week and we made crockpot pumpkin bread with homemade butter. OH MY AMAZING.

It’s quick and easy to make and it tastes GREAT!
