New project about helping others

Our reading story this week is about Thanksgiving. We are all thankful for lots of things that we have at home, school, and everywhere. We want to share some of our things with others. Ms. Cade is going to fill shoeboxes with stuff. One box for a boy and one box for a girl in another country. If you want to help, send in something small that will fit in a shoebox and send it in by Friday, November 5. The boxes will be sent overseas to children who are in need. In social studies, we are talking about heros and what heros do. This is a way for us to be a small hero for someone else.

The boys suggest: finger skateboards, match box cars, small footballs, or food or candy that can't melt.

The girls suggest silly bands, dolls, hairbows, silly rings, crayons, coloring books, or bubble gum.

Holidays are a pleasant time when people gather together to celebrate. What do you do to celebrate Thanksgiving? Kara goes to her Granny's and eats lots of good food. Keylynn cooks food at his house. Miranda goes to her Grandma's house to eat turkey. Ian plays with cousins on the go-cart and trampolin. Allen celebrates his birthday as well as Thanksgiving. Tatum celebrated her papaw's birthday last year on Thanksgiving.

People either live alone or with others. Animals usually share their space. When does sharing make sense? Nikki shares a room and it makes sense for her because there are more people than rooms at her house. Kaitlyn shares cookies at girl scouts because everyone needs to get the same amount or it wouldn't be fair to anyone. Kara would share with someone who didn't have any because that would be nice.
