For reading, for books, for learning, for sharing, for friends, for teachers, for our community....and so much more.
We decided to celebrate the things we were thankful for by having a very special day filled with lots of fun activities.
Reading Day Celebration Google Doc.
Our little ones were especially excited to pick out a new book or two at the Book Swap.
Will and Ross read to the other class of 2nd graders while.....
At the end of the day, we gathered all of the elementary students in the little gym to show Charlie Brown's Thanksgiving.
And no movie would be compete without popcorn....and there was lots of it at Van Meter today.
We also had a food drive for our local food pantry. The elementary students were very generous with the items that they brought. This will help others within our community so much.
Today was one of those days as a teacher that one is just thankful that they work with amazing young people everyday. To see the compassion and love spread through the activities we did throughout the day turned it into much more than a day to be thankful for reading and books.
It turned out to be a day being thankful for each other.
Thank you Van Meter....I loved our day being of giving thanks. Have a blessed and peaceful Thanksgiving.
