Thanksgiving week.

It’s been a busy Thanksgiving-themed week!  Our class has been having conversations about all of the things we are grateful for.  We filled out feathers to add to the school turkey and we wore tags displaying our gratitude.

In math we have been working in groups to solve our turkey problems.  It has proved to be fun and engaging.  Check out our hard work below!
