As I was growing up, I always enjoyed Thanksgiving. It brought my family together to tell stories, share recipes, and play fierce Monopoly tournaments. I look back to the many Thanksgiving dinners and cherish the memories. I started having a Thanksgiving feast in my classroom last year and I thought it was a wonderful way to build a family atmosphere with my class.
After our turkey parade, my class returned to our room. There parents had already brought in food for our feast. The students were excited to see the yummy foods. I rearranged my tables to create one long table for the students to eat together. Parents passed out foods and encouraged the students to try something new. Before we ate, the students shared what they were thankful for.
Parents joined in and ate with the students. We even had another class join us halfway through. My students were excited to share the foods with the other students. The students had a great feast as they were laughing and singing songs from our turkey parade.
I could not have done this feast without the help of parents. My parents spent time cooking delicious foods for us to eat. They took time out of their day to bring in the food. For that, I am thankful for such a wonderful class this year!
