Happy Thanksgiving from Room 3

Happy Thanksgiving
 Miss Hemingway

New Zealand doesn't celebrate Thanksgiving 
BUT.....   we did!

Here's a taste of our Thanksgiving week. 
(a little early we know but we wanted to 
celebrate it with Miss Hemingway before she went home)
 Miss Hemingway wanted to know how much we already knew about Thanksgiving.

Here's our KWL

Albuquerque Turkey
Our Poem of the week

Albuquerque is a turkey
And he's feathered and he's fine
And he wobbles and he gobbles
and he's absolutely mine.
He's the best pet that you can get.....
Better than a dog or a cat.
He's my Albuquerque turkey
And I'm awfully proud of that.
He once told me, very frankly
he preferred to be my pet,
not the main course at my dinner,
and I told him not to fret.
And my Albuquerque turkey
is so happy in his bed, 
'Cause for our Thanksgiving dinner.....
We had egg foo yong instead!

These are our apple turkeys that we made after our Thanksgiving feast. We used and apple, raisins, popcorn, a large marshmallow, mini marshmallows and thanks to Kelly for the real American candy!    Miss Hemingway made this one! 

Here's Duraiz, Meah, Lauryn, Amanda, Nicholas, Denny and Christine preparing their coloured cardboard so they can then start to weave their place mats for the   Thanksgiving table.
