Here Comes Thanksgiving!

Friday, November 21st, 2014

Miss Pat decided to use the coming Thanksgiving holiday to teach a history lesson about life in the American colonies.

She invited Jay, since he is an American Indian, to tell the story of what the early colonists ate at that first Thanksgiving meal.

Thanksgiving“Hi,” said Jay. ”What I am going to tell you about today I  learned from reading and listening to the History Channel on TV.

What did the Pilgrims and their Native American guests eat that first Thanksgiving day? Well, lots of what they called fowl caught by hunters. There were ducks and geese eaten on the first Thanksgiving. Historians don’t know for sure if they had wild turkeys. They may have.

If the Pilgrims had cranberries, they would not have been sweet. Colonists didn’t start to boil cranberries with sugar for another 50 years.

They didn’t have potatoes either. The colonists were not growing white or sweet potatoes back then. They didn’t have sweet pies for dessert since they didn’t have butter and flour for pie crust and there was very little sugar for pie filling.

They did have lobsters, mussels, white and red grapes, black and red plums, and flint corn. And that’s what I know about what they ate on that first Thanksgiving.”

Everyone clapped and Miss Pat said, “Thank you Jay for sharing all that you know about that first Thanksgiving!”

Miss Pat looked around the room. While the “Can Do” kids were quiet, they didn’t look very energetic. In the morning they had a math test. Right after lunch they took a spelling quiz. They were tested out. Time for something just for fun.

” Class,” said Miss Pat,” time to start thinking about Thanksgiving.”  With that Miss Pat handed out a maze and a word jumble with a Thanksgiving theme.

The “Can Dos” got right to work figuring out the maze and finding the words in the jumble.

Just for fun,  print out the maze and jumble and see how you do.

Five Tips to Make Your Halloween Safe

Tuesday, October 21st, 2014

Halloween

Miss Pat had the “Can Dos” gather round her and read the following tips for being safe on Halloween night.

“It’s fun going from house to house to collect as much candy as possible before your bag bursts.

This year, make sure you have an extra safe Halloween night with these trick-or-treat tips.

  1. When you’re making your costume, make sure you can see. Masks can make it hard to see, so try face paint instead. And make sure that other people can see you in your costume. Wear light colors and ask your parents to put reflective tape on your costume so cars can see you.
  2. Does your costume have a long cape or are you wearing a long dress? Make sure it won’t make you trip and fall. You don’t want to spill all the candy you collected!
  3. Plot out a trick or treat map with your mom or dad. Figure out which houses you want to go to and how long you think you’ll be gone. If Mom and Dad are not going with you, make sure you carry the map so you don’t get lost.
  4. Let your mom and dad look at your candy before you eat any of it. Throw out any candy that has an open or damaged wrapper.
  5. Candy is yummy, but if you eat too much of it you’ll get sick. That’s why Mom or Dad only let you eat a couple pieces each day. If you want to learn how much candy is too much, play the Halloween Candy game.

Now you’re all set to go out and collect as much Halloween candy as you can!”

Miss Pat Didn’t Let the “Can Dos” Finish Reading

Wednesday, October 15th, 2014

PatTeacher Pat gathered the “Can Do” Kids around her for story time and asked “Class, what story shall we read today?”

Willie raised his hand. “Yes Willie,” said Teacher Pat. I’d like to read a Halloween story from the book my grandma gave me,” said Willie.

“Willie, you will need to pass the book around so the rest of the class can each read a little from your book,” said Miss Pat. “That’s fine  with me Miss Pat,” said Willie.Pat

“The name of my book is the Pumpkin Patch,” shared Willie. He began to read, “Long ago a farmer had a pumpkin patch, with rows and rows of bright orange pumpkins. There must have been a hundred of them.”

“Willie, time to pass the book to your right and let Wendy read a few lines,” said Teacher Pat. Wendy began to read, “The farmer promised the children of the town they could each pick out a pumpkin for Halloween to carve with their families and put in their living room windows.”

“It’s Arthur J’s  turn Wendy,” said Teacher Pat.

Arthur J began to read,”The f-f-f-farmer told the ch-ch-ch-children that the p-p-p-p-pumpkins were almost ready to p-p-p-pick.’”

Arthur J stopped reading because some of his classmates were laughing at him.

Miss Pat said, “Thank you Arthur J. Please return the book to Willie. Story time is over for today.”

Questions:

Do you know why Miss Pat ended story time when she did?
