Hooray for Big Buddies. We had a fun activity tracing turkey hands. Then we made a buddy clothespin wreath to share between the classes. It’s so fun to see the 5th graders interact with us little buddies.
We have so much to be thankful for. We did several projects that had a turkey or Thanksgiving theme. We learned with our Scholastic News about the original Wampanoag Indians, the tribe that was part of the Pilgrims 500 years ago. We read about how life was like for the Wampanoags. We compared about things they had with things we had. The Wampanoags lived in a wetu, we live in a house. They used a mooshin for travel down the river, we use a car to travel down roads. They grew fields of corn, we (farmers) also grow corn. The Wampanoag children played games, we play games. Speaking of games, did you get a chance to play the stick game? We made it and played it with a partner. It was fun to toss the sticks in the air and match the points on the table. It was a bit more challenging to total the score, so maybe you can help us there. Listen to our audioboom about how thankful we are. We came home with the turkey and its thankful feathers.
Hooray for Big Buddies. We had a fun activity tracing turkey hands. Then we wrote how we are thankful. At the end, we exchanged traced turkeys. Last we made a buddy clothespin wreath to share between the classes. It’s so fun to see the 5th graders interact with us little buddies.
