Sending a BIG thank you to Kaedin’s family for sending lots of extra things for the classroom!

I really enjoyed sitting down with you all to talk about your children! Thanks for making the time to do so. I wish we could do it more often! Your children are gifts and I adore them. They are taking off and I love to watch them learn and grow!

Little Pilgrim
(sung to “Twinkle, Twinkle”)

Little Pilgrim clothed in gray
on that first Thanksgiving Day.

Natives also clothed in brown
come to visit Plymouth town.

Side by side they ate and prayed
on that first Thanksgiving Day.

Let’s be thankful for this day,
for our friends and for our play.

Let’s be thankful, let’s be glad,
for our food and the things we have.

Let’s give thanks for you and me
and our home and family.
