2nd grade feast November 22, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — zellner @ 11:08 am

Emma’s class celebrated Thanksgiving this past Friday. They dressed as Indians, selected their own Indian names, and sang songs for us.  The girls sang an Indian lullaby to their baby dolls in their arms.

   

The boys sang a hunting song.  Then the class quoted the bible verses they had learned and then they stepped forward one by one and said what they were thankful for.  Emma was thankful for a loving teacher.

Then we ate a “feast” together.

I was so thankful to be able to focus on her and celebrate it with her.  It wasn’t so long ago that I was celebrating the same way with her older sister.
