Thanksgiving Started When? Videos FUN or Factual? Mouse on the Mayflower

We started with a video that was more factual.
It helped give the kids some background information on Thanksgiving.

History Of Thanksgiving Day
By Studies weekly 

 Before we saw the next video, 
we had a discussion about 
real and fantasy.
The kids knew a mouse telling the story was 
fun but not factual. 

We discussed some characters in the story.
Some were historical and some fiction.

We had a short discussion about one of our freedoms, religious freedom.

We also learned a little about 
New England winters.
 We have a new student from Maine.
First hand accounts are always interesting.

The Mouse on the Mayflower

It was a little long but the kids still enjoyed it.
Hope you do too.
Happy Thanksgiving

The Magic E Song

Introducing Magic E!
FUN to sing along and learn.

 If you are teaching CVCe words,
 long vowels,
show this video.

It's super cute and
My SunnyDaz Kids LoVE It!
You will too.

Then practice them with a 
Magnetic Letter Center.
Students build the word with magnetic letters then they write the word in color.
They use the same color as the magnetic letter.
Using crayons, markers, smelly markers, gel pens even window markers to write with will
 make any kid happy!
Happy is good :)
Trade them around to keep it exciting.

Come join me and
